Coasties brush up on their artistic skills
FIRE, earth and space are all the magnificent things residents can explore at this week’s Holy Trinity Kawana Art Show.
The showcase features works from professional and amateur artists from all areas of the Sunshine Coast region.
Promotion officer Del Morrison said creators submitted their works into one of three categories: Pentecost, In God’s World or Student.
However with over 120 entries, the church has called on the public to help them decide the deserving winners.
As of Friday, May 18 residents have been able to explore the temporary gallery at the Holy Trinity Kawana Church to vote for their favourite pieces.
But don’t worry, if you haven’t been able to make it down to cast your vote because voting will stay open until Sunday.
That means there is plenty of time to cast your eyes over the masterpieces made from a rainbow of oils, acrylics and pastels.
Generous cash prizes will be awarded to the winners with $500 going to the winner of the Pentecost section and $200 to whoever takes out the In God’s World and Student sections.
Mrs Morrison said they have had all different types of artists submit their works, from young students to her 92-year-old mother.
“Even my mother submitted a beautiful crotchet work signifying sunflowers,” she said.
The keen creative said the event hopes to encourage cultural growth on the Coast by giving local artists a platform to showcase their art.
The church is accepting $5 donations from attendees and all proceeds will be donated to HTK supported charities such as Barnabas Fund, Global Giving and the Maroochydore Neighbourhood Centre. WHERE: 11 Meridan Street, Bokarina.
