Isis Town and Country - - News -

CHILDERS Arts Space held the open­ing of its lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion Tat­ter­sall’s Club Land­scape Art Prize last Fri­day even­ing in front of a small crowd of pas­sion­ate artists.

The event was at­tended by sev­eral mem­bers of the Childers Arts Coun­cil Vis­ual Art Group, coun­cil­lor Judy Peters of Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil and Tat­ter­sall’s Club pres­i­dent, Des Why­bird.

Com­mu­nity And Cul­tural Ser­vices Port­fo­lio spokesman Cr Judy Peters said the ex­hi­bi­tion cel­e­brates Tat­ter­sall’s Club’s 150th an­niver­sary and 25 years of their na­tional Land­scape Art Prize.

“I would en­cour­age res­i­dents to visit CHARTS to view this ex­cel­lent ex­hi­bi­tion, which runs un­til De­cem­ber 11.”

“It was in­cred­i­bly pleas­ing to see the work of lo­cal artist He­lene Grove show­cased as part of this col­lec­tion with her piece Queens­land Coun­try,” Cr Peters said.

To cel­e­brate the an­niver­sary, 15 out­stand­ing award-win­ning works from the col­lec­tion are tour­ing re­gional Queens­land.

The works have been cho­sen be­cause of their con­nec­tion to Queens­land and col­lec­tively present di­verse ways of view­ing and in­ter­pret­ing the land­scape.

The art­works fea­tured in the ex­hi­bi­tion are by mid and se­nior ca­reer artists, and fea­ture a range of paint­ing styles in­clud­ing tra­di­tional, con­tem­po­rary, nar­ra­tive, in­dus­trial and ur­ban.

The pres­ti­gious an­nual event fea­tures a high cal­i­bre of works and some by ac­claimed Aus­tralian artists all work­ing in the same genre.

Artists to be in­cluded in the cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion on dis­play at CHARTS in­clude: Gor­don Shep­herd­son, John Cald­well, Michael Nel­son Jaga­marra, Davida Allen, Su­bil Cur­tis, Mau­reen Hansen and Joe Fur­long.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open and free to the pub­lic to wan­der through the dis­play.

The next gallery open­ing will be held on Fri­day, 16 De­cem­ber with the ex­hi­bi­tion by artist Kay S Lawrence from 5.30pm.
