DAB­blers come out of blue

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - ENTERTAINMENT -

THE Dou­glas Arts Base’s new­est ex­hi­bi­tion, Out of the Blue brings to­gether two lo­cal artists work­ing in acrylics with a va­ri­ety of styles and sub­ject mat­ter.

It fea­tures the work of two promis­ing artists, Terry De­laney and Michaela Bohm, whose acrylic paint­ings are var­ied in both sub­ject mat­ter and style.

Terry ar­rived in Far North Queens­land in 1997 from Eng­land, bring­ing with her a love of foot­ball (the round ball va­ri­ety) and re­cently com­peted with dis­tinc­tion in the Masters Games in Syd­ney.

“I had no in­ter­est in artis­tic pur­suits at all, un­til a friend ha­rassed me into join­ing DAB in 2008”, she said.

“From that time I have be­come a ded­i­cated painter, ea­ger to try new ideas.”

Michaela’ s in­ter­est in art started whilst grow­ing up in her na­tive Ger­many, where por­traits were a ma­jor choice, but the later re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of study, rais­ing a fam­ily plus busi­ness in­ter­ests put her tal­ents on hold.

The ex­hibi­tiqon runs from Fri­day, Au­gust 20 to Sun­day, Au­gust 29 at DAB, 11 Mill St in Moss­man.

Af­ter the open­ing at 7pm to­mor­row, fea­tur­ing Table­land artist Kerri Red­ding, the ex­hi­bi­tion will be open 10am - 2pm week­days, and 10am - noon on week­ends.
