See melodic art
BEK Roberts loves nothing more than music and art.
That’s why this year’s show will be extra special for the musician who’s been artistic all her life.
This weekend welcomes back the annual Show Whitsunday Art Exhibition at the art and craft pavilion.
The theme for this year’s exhibition is music, with around 250 artworks on display.
Organiser Suzi Hancock-Janicki said the diverse theme was about artists creating their own interpretation of music.
Ms Roberts will be displaying her Stevie Wonder artwork.
“This piece is just me,” she simply said.
“There’s been heart, soul, blood, sweat and tears baby.”
The piece is a pencil drawing of Stevie Wonder in a blue shirt and in the reflection of his iconic shades are other musicians who inspire Ms Roberts.
Hayley Williams from Paramore, Pink, Eva Cassidy and John Farnham are the others. This artwork has been three months in the making – whenever she could.
“There was one Sunday where I painted from 9am–6pm,” Ms Roberts said. The Show Whitsunday Art Exhibition is open from 10am on Friday and closes at 4pm Saturday.
There are several categories to be judged. Independent judge, Bowen artist Pam Finlay will travel to take part in the event.
