Gallery 1 Catherine Parker Kali, put on your red dress
Gallery 2 The Xmas tree show
Opening night Friday December 2, 6pm
All good things come to an end. The Noosa Regional Gallery celebrates a busy and successful year with its own version of Christmas. In previous years the gallery has programmed some great art blockbusters and it has still not dragged people away from the shopping, relaxing and partying. This year we have decided that if you can't beat them then join them.
The gallery introduces its own Christmas tree exhibition. Artists have created 11 artistic trees. They are not your ordinary Christmas trees mind you. Without giving it all away you will be surprised. The exhibition consists of trees made of recycled materials and other unusual things as well as the traditional pine tree re-developed, re-constructed and re-decorated.
Whilst we have given into the Christmas spirit - both in the Christian meaning of the term and also the Capitalist meaning we are also providing another antidote to the spiritual and materialist excess. This is in the form of a wonderful exhibition by Toowoomba artist, Catherine Parker, of paintings based on her work with Hindu and Buddhist symbols and icons during her recent residency in New Delhi and Ladakh in the Himalayas.
Each of Catherine's works contain a combination of figurative and inanimate objects which float in a sea of red, imbued with touches of orange, turquoise, lime and gold. Influenced by the vibrant colours of India they also pay homage to the many colourful rituals and pujas (offerings to the deities) that permeate every aspect of Indian society.
And on this note the gallery also farewells its long serving Director, Kevin Wilson who takes up the position of Director of Albury Regional Art Gallery in NSW in early January. Again, all good things come to an end.
