A LIT­TLE HIS­TORY MIXED WITH ART

YAN­D­INA HIS­TORIC HOUSE PAINTS A PIC­TURE OF OUR RE­GION WITH ROOMS OF ART­WORKS AND POT­TERY

Life & Style Weekend - - ARTS - WORDS: TONY GILL

Vis­i­tors will be thor­oughly sur­prised by the di­ver­sity of art on of­fer at Yan­d­ina His­toric House. Wan­der through the rooms and be privy to a col­lec­tion of high-qual­ity paint­ings and pot­tery cre­ated by Sun­shine Coast artists. This gallery of­fers a va­ri­ety of paint­ing styles and gen­res in­clud­ing lo­cal land­scapes, seascapes and an­i­mal life. Mixed in among the paint­ings is a unique range of pot­tery – all ex­tremely well made by lo­cal pot­ters and rea­son­ably priced. Yan­d­ina His­toric House has a quaint craft shop which is jam-packed with lo­cally made chil­dren’s cloth­ing, scarves and bric-a-brac. An in­ter­est­ing his­tory room has pho­tos and arte­facts from the lo­cal area mak­ing it easy to dis­cover home-grown in­for­ma­tion and see many his­tor­i­cal pho­tos as well. The at­mos­phere is re­laxed and vis­i­tors will be able to sit and en­gage with art while en­joy­ing a Devon­shire tea and scone. Well worth a visit.
