Friends of the Gallery Opening Reception

The opening reception for the Friends of the Gallery exhibition is one great party that celebrates arts on the Sunshine Coast. With over 120 art pieces in the exhibition, it’s a not-to-miss event that starts out the new year. The exhibition runs January 3 – February 2, 2020.

Friends of the Gallery Exhibition

The Friends of the Gallery (FOG) exhibition is a long-standing community event that has spanned more than 20 years. Originally, the aim was to create a way of involving emerging artists in a gallery show and to acknowledge the role of the arts in the community. What started small now includes over 120 pieces of art by artists. Individual artists are invited to submit one piece of art they have completed in the previous year to be shown in this group exhibition. The exhibition is a perennial favorite with artists and the public on the Sunshine Coast.

Art Opening, Painter Annie Robinson

New paintings from Townsite artist, Annie Robinson.

*The show will be in the recently finished space directly across from the brewery, seen from Ash.*

Opening Thursday, Nov 14th, 6-8PM

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
I’m a painter working mostly in watercolour and acrylic. My current focus is impressionist, shape-based West Coast landscapes. Using pour painting methods and mixed media, my recent paintings intend to evoke a bright and childlike perspective. Fluid and spacious, the shapes are depictions of the ocean, sky and mountains that surround us.

The subjects of the paintings, acrylic and multi media on canvas, are taken from her love of the coast life style she embraces daily, from the beach, to the ocean, to the farm acreage she lives on.
