It’s only weeks to go until we hang VIANTA Arts special Christmas Celebration Exhibition ‘A Little Piece of the Sun’...

Are you trying to buy a present for someone who already has everything? Do you have friends or family coming to stay and you know that they would love to get an original souvenir of their holiday? Or do you just feel like treating yourself to something special? ‘A Little Piece of the Sun’ is definitely the show for you then!

With thirteen of our many excellent Hinterland artists exhibiting small (or not so small!) works glowing with warmth and light, there’s bound to be something for everyone - from Joy Joyce’s fine watercolours of assemblages of birds to Robyn Shaw’s impressionistic landscapes shimmering with summer light, and from Anne McArthur’s carefully constructed and detailed landscapes to Bernardine Hine’s translucent textile works, all thirteen artists have made a bold statement about their love of our hinterland environment.

Raquel Manson’s joyful glowing works of the imagination and Christine Elcoate’s humorous representation of one of our national pastimes complement Melanie Gray Augustin’s emotionally packed abstracts, while Cholena Hughes’ cyanotypes, created by exposure to sunlight, reflect the strength of the sun’s rays in Michele Retschlag’s masterly watercolours.

For those of you who enjoyed Kevin Grealy’s and Annie McIntosh’s exhibitions, or who are still enjoying Jim Cox’s exhibition - there are more treats in store for you with new works by all of these artists on show. 

Unlike all of our other exhibitions, ‘A Little Piece of the Sun’ will be an ‘off the wall’ show - meaning that if a work sells it can be taken of the wall right then and it will be replaced with another work by that artist - by the time the exhibition closes we expect it to be completely different to the opening night show!

A Little Piece of the Sun’ will hang at VIANTA Arts, 70 Simpson Street Beerwah, from the 29th of November to the 31st of January 2016 and will open at 6:00pm on the 4th of December 2015.

Light refreshments will be served at the opening, and an a la carte menu will be available from 7:00pm, after the opening – call Steve on 0412 312 399 for table bookings.
