The Gallery Eumundi

The Gallery Eumundi is now firmly established on Gympie Terrace in Noosaville, with a beautiful view of Noosa River. There is no better way to celebrate this new art space than to hold a group exhibition of the wonderful artists represented by the gallery.

The artists and gallery director, Karen Beardsley, love the increased exposure they are experiencing in the new location.

“The complete feeling on the river is so positive and we have welcomed many new clients into our space. There is great energy around us and the friendliness of the surrounding businesses have really made us embrace this change” says Karen Beardsley.

“Exposing our fabulous artists to more people is the key to success. Our loyal clients also are enjoying the change of scenery and have been eagerly awaiting a new exhibition with an opening night on the river”.

The artists represented in this show are some of the best on the Sunshine Coast as well as nationally and internationally acclaimed and collected.

“We are very selective about who we represent at the gallery” the viewers will agree the gallery exhibits the finest quality of art. It is without a doubt one of the first places to stop if you are looking for fine art in Noosa”

All the artists will be showcasing new works and the eclectic collection means that there is something for everyone; the bold works in oil, by the artist Des Rolph where Noosa National park has been the influence of her stunning ethereal landscapes. Caroline Magerl once again paints her striking figures in a beautiful rich colour palette. The master of acrylic James Ainslie will not disappoint his followers with moody skies and presenting pure Australian landscapes. Madeleine Ekeblad takes us on a musical whirlwind with skilfully applied enamel on canvas. For something a little quirky and challenging there is nothing better than Paul Reynolds with his wonderful mixed media on canvas. Ron McBurnie‘s delicate and atmospheric ink and watercolour works on paper have the feel of French Provence.

Printmaking at its best. Eumundi based artist Shirley Strano takes a journey through her garden in bold hand coloured linocuts. For something intense, strong and highly collectable Euan Macleod’s etchings include “Big Turtle” and “Melting Man”, both of which have been recently acquired to the permanent collection of the National Gallery in Canberra. Arone Meeks with his vibrant monoprints influenced by Cyclone Yasi last year exposes you to incredible contemporary indigenous printmaking.

The three dimensional section of the gallery as always is second to none. Julie Wall’s feminine but strong pieces will delight the admirers of her work. To bring a smile to you face there is nothing better than Di West’s humorous and unique bronzes. For something more sensual Rhonda Cao’s exquisite body forms cast in bronze are a must. Sue McPherson’s etched hot glass has been teamed with ‘found objects’; the results are unique and narrate a great story. Finally, the local ceramicist Rowley Drysdale has provided us yet again with breathtaking and stunning work.

The exhibition opens on Wednesday 14 March and runs until Sunday 15 April. We invite you to join the gallery directors and some of the artists for a glass of champagne on the opening night on Saturday 17 March at 6pm.

The award winning Blue Angel restaurant next door will provide a cash bar and canapés. If you are likely to dine there after the opening, booking will be essential.
