Coasties brush up on their artis­tic skills

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE / LOCAL LIFE -

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.
