The opportunity for this exhibition literally came out of the blue, however, I am really happy with the thread I've created between the works - the two larger works, Resilient I and II have been previously exhibited - Resilient I in Living Change, the Flying Arts Alliance Inc touring exhibition of the 2013 Queensland Regional Art Awards, and Resilient II in Reflections, Friends Noosa Regional Gallery Taste of Art 2015 group show at Noosa Regional Gallery. I've wanted to showcase these works together for some time now and it's great the opportunity presented itself.
New works also featured are the prototypes for my recent commission, to design and make the 2016 Sunshine Coast Australia Day Awards Trophy - four unique designs were created for the Trophy with one exclusively chosen, the remaining three designs (executed differently) feature in this exhibition.
Held at the Butter Factory Arts Centre, Cooroy the exhibition opens on Friday 8 January, 2016 at 6pm with guest speaker Nina Shodforth, Director, Noosa Regional Gallery, and officially opened by Julie Hauritz, Public Art Officer, Sunshine Coast Regional Council. It would be wonderful to see you there, if you can make it. My work will showcase in the Foyer, and Kym Barrett in the Creamery who is also exhibiting - both exhibitions open on the same evening.
Exhibition dates: 8 January - 17 February, 2016
