Brace yourself for Art Attack
ART Attack returns to Gayndah as business and community group members create an artwork for auction next year.
The first event in 2012 raised $6000 and funds from this event will go towards art gallery projects, such as framing artworks gifted to Gayndah by sister city Zonhoven in Belgium.
An artist will act as mentor for each of the 12 participants.
Annemaree McGilvery, whose bottle tree against a sunset hangs in their electrical shop, painted hers in one afternoon.
Wendy Lutvey enjoyed creating her beach scene so much she’s continued to paint, and a couple of her pictures have been hung in the Gayndah Art Gallery.
“Sue (Capewell) was a wonderful mentor,” Ms Lutvey said.
“Sue taught me to paint the canvas with water and let it dry.”
Before adding beach umbrellas, chairs and waves, Sue showed her how to section the work into three for sky, sea and beach, followed by working from the back and building out.
Art Attack will be launched at the gallery on October 17 at the opening of Centrefold, an exhibition by Childers’ artists Alice McLaughlin and Kym Connell.
