The Noosa Regional Gallery's Sunshine Coast Art Collection exhibition will present selected works for the first time, the rich diversity of the Sunshine Coast Council's art collection from the last decade to be shared with the community. The Gallery's public program will host two floor talks by artists with works featured in the exhibition. Tony Albert will provide an insight in to his 50perCent series with a walk and talk guided tour. Johanna DeMaine and Peter Hudson will discuss their works in the context of collections and acquisitive art prizes.
Part of proppaNOW art collective, Tony Albert is one of Queensland's most exciting young contemporary indigenous artists. Brisbane-based and born in Townsville, North Queensland Tony is provoked by the stereotypical representations of Indigenous Australians in mainstream culture. Tony's series of work, 50perCENT will be exhibited for the first time in full, as part of the Sunshine Coast Collection Exhibition.
Johanna's work is in collections all around the world, including the National Gallery of Australia and the Queensland Art Gallery, Brisbane. The Crown Prince Frederick and Princess Mary of Denmark and H.R.H. Queen Elizabeth II also boast DeMaine's work in their own collections. Her rich experience and superb craftsmanship brings a high level of interest as a local resident of the Sunshine Coast and inclusion in the Sunshine Coast Art Collection exhibition. Johanna will share with us her history and development as an artist and what it means to be part of the collection on exhibition.
Peter Hudson will share his experience about his residency and practice since winning SCAP09. Peter is well recognised in the Sunshine Coast region as a skilled and accomplished artist and recipient of a number of art awards, including a finalist in the Archibald in 2007.
