Hol­i­days draw art tal­ent to­gether for cre­ative fun

What’s on at the Gallery ...

The Gympie Times - - NEWS -

DRAW­ING is some­thing we all do whether it’s doo­dling on the phone, or draw­ing a mud map to our favourite place.

Young chil­dren first draw and make marks be­fore they speak or write.

The Jacaranda Ac­quis­i­tive Draw­ing Award (JADA) is a tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion from the Grafton Re­gional Gallery that ex­plores all forms of draw­ing, whether it is with dif­fer­ent medi­ums like char­coal, paint, graphite or pas­tel.

It also ex­plores dif­fer­ent ways of draw­ing, with a brush, pen or for an an­i­ma­tion.

The JADA ex­hi­bi­tion is on view un­til Oc­to­ber 5 at the Gympie Re­gional Gallery in Nash St.

Also on view is an ex­hi­bi­tion by seven tex­tiles artists – Rhonda Ret­tke, Carol Wilkes, Ellen Kelly, Fay Ped­dley, Joan Mor­ri­son, Junee Groe­neweg and Mar­ion Dou­glas.

They are all in­ter­ested in or­ganic tex­tures and ma­te­ri­als such as pa­per, fab­ric, threads, bark and plants.

Each artist has ex­plored their medium through in­ter­pret­ing the theme of “con­ceal and re­veal” in their own unique way.

The ex­hi­bi­tion Con­ceal Re­veal will of­fi­cially open to­day at 1.30pm and will con­tinue to be on view un­til Oc­to­ber 5.

Gympie Re­gional Gallery is lo­cated at 39 Nash St, just up the hill from Gold­fields Plaza.

Phone 5481 0733 for more in­for­ma­tion.
