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.
