My hinterland studio will be open Friday 19 May to Sunday 21 May 10am to 4pm
Join us for a dynamic, week-long event to meet talented Sunshine Coast artists in their own creative space and environment. Art enthusiasts and collectors can enjoy a rare opportunity to see behind the scenes, meet and directly support local makers.
The curated art trail embraces the region from Caloundra to Coolum along the coastline aa well as taking in the Hinterland through popular tourist destinations like Maleny and Montville. You can take a self-guided tour to visit local artists, buy art, join in workshops and gain new appreciation for the region’s rich and diverse art scene.
Arts represented this year include original ceramics, drawing, glass, mixed media, painting, photography, print, sculpture, textiles, metalwork, woodwork, jewellery, installation, printmaking and more. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience quality local artwork and purchase art straight from the artist themselves.
Chromatica is a celebration of colour and will be the first in a series of exhibitions at The Zone Gallery in 2021. The Exhibition is the coming together of artists wanting to explore their connection with colour and how they use it to respond to the world, express emotion and cultural identity. The exhibition will include prints, photographs, sculpture, jewellery and woodwork and is a celebration of some of our region’s most talented emerging and established artists.
The exhibition continues until Monday 26 April. The Zone Gallery is located at 89 McCarthy Road, Maleny and is open from 10am until 3pm daily.
As part of Open Studios Sunshine Coast, I will be opening my studio to the public for one special weekend. The Open Studios event offers a rare opportunity to gain insight into local artist's practice, techniques and materials, discuss their vision, and view their artwork both complete and in progress.
The program will include both established and emerging artists, working with a diverse range of mediums, including: ceramics, drawing, glass, mixed-media, painting, photography, print and jewellery.
For detailed information, a comprehensive guidebook, complete with a schedule, trail maps and artist profiles, will be available soon at various information centres, galleries, and cafes around the region. It will also be available online at www.openstudiossunshinecoast.com.au.
Opening Hours: Monday - Sunday 10am–3pm
