Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

STUN­NING botan­i­cal draw­ings will be on dis­play, along with an abun­dance of other art forms at the Dou­glas Art Base’s End of Year Ex­hi­bi­tion, kick­ing-off tomorrow night.

Fan­tas­tic sculp­tures, print mak­ing, paint­ings and draw­ings, still-life and ink work are just some of the art that will be on dis­play for the first time, never hav­ing been ex­hib­ited be­fore.

DAB mem­ber Carol Edel­berg said the ex­hi­bi­tion is an op­por­tu­nity for ev­ery­one to catch a glimpse of the works they do at their stu­dio.

‘‘This is an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to come along and see what kind of work is be­ing done at DAB and the first time to see what the new tu­tors have been do­ing with their stu­dents,’’ Ms Edel­berg said.

‘‘DAB is a won­der­ful place for view­ing art­work in­side a beau­ti­ful his­toric build­ing and this will be the last chance for peo­ple to come and view un­til half way through next year.

‘‘There are some pretty amaz­ing sculp­tures, the few that I have seen have been quite out­stand­ing.’’

The ex­hi­bi­tion will be launched tomorrow night, Novem­ber 29 from 6.30pm and will be a chance to min­gle with the dig­ni­taries of Dou­glas, with the new coun­cil­lors all in­vited.

‘‘We have got ev­ery­thing, mu­sic, drinks and nib­bles – we al­ways have great good and it’s a very fun so­cial night be­cause a lot of other artists come along to see what’s be­ing shown,’’ Ms Edel­berg said.

‘‘The night is also an op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to meet the artists dis­play­ing their work and have a chat with the tu­tors who will be there too.

‘‘DAB is on its own now fi­nan­cially and we are try­ing to get as much sup­port as pos­si­ble from ev­ery­one.’’

The Dou­glas Arts Base End of Year Ex­hi­bi­tion is launch­ing tomorrow at 6.30pm and will be open Mon­day to Satur­day 10am-2pm un­til De­cem­ber 12 at mid­day and can be lo­cated at the DAB, 11 Mill Street, Moss­man.
