Opening by Cr Bob Abbot, Mayor of Noosa, 6 pm Friday 23 March 07
An exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints, the culmination of works by seven unique local women - 'Women with Artitude'- who have been meeting once a week for the past year.
Working under the guidance of Susan Coburn at Wallace House, the artists took Cooroora Mountain as their theme.
"Initially each artist drew aspects of the mountain in the field," said Susan. "From there they then worked with their drawings utilising a variety of media and techniques to produce new works, while abstracting them out through their own expression.
"This new exhibition shows acrylic paintings, drawings and prints of various forms," she said. "But I think one of the most intriguing pieces is a set of drawings created by the group, where each artist started a drawing, then moved on to the next drawing, rotating around the room until each of the seven pieces was added to by each artist.
"The result is an amazing array of creativity which exemplifies the attitude of respect, trust and confidence that has built between these inspiring women," Susan said.
"Working with this group over the past year has been a joyful, tough and sometimes deeply emotional journey and this exhibition is a glimpse of that journey."
