Coolum Art Collective Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Fifty years ago a group of local artists got together and formed what is today known as the Coolum Art Collective. Their goal was simply to promote local art to people on the Sunshine Coast and the growing tourist trade.
This Easter the Coolum Art Collective will celebrate their 50th anniversary with their annual Easter Art Exhibition to be held at the Coolum Civic Centre and continue the legacy started by the original members.
The three day exhibition will feature art and craft works from some of the Sunshine Coast’s leading artists, and offer a diverse range of art to suit many tastes and budgets.
Coolum Art Collective President, Shirley Almeta Lennon said, “Our 50th anniversary show this Easter for the Coolum Art Collective promises to be our most exciting Easter exhibition show yet. With more than 20 leading local artists exhibiting their latest work, visitors will get the chance to see outstanding local artworks on display and find quality artwork at affordable prices to adorn their walls at home.”
Over 200 original works are offered for sale comprising a variety of styles and mediums, from traditional oils and watercolours to acrylic works. Also on offer are smaller unframed works to suit every budget.
Each show there is a themed section of works separate from the main body of work, and this year the theme is Back To The Sixties. Exhibiting artists will each submit one piece of work based on this central idea.
“The themed works section of the exhibition gives our artists an opportunity to showcase their talents around a central common theme and will be a lot of fun with our theme this year of Back To The Sixties” Lennon said.
For visitors entry is free and the opportunity to view and take home quality artwork from leading artists on the Sunshine Coast is not to be missed. Visitors are also invited to select their favourites in the People’s Choice award.
This Easter, make sure you visit the 50th Anniversary exhibition of the Coolum Art Collective to be held at the Coolum Civic Center Friday 19th April to Sunday 21st April 9:30am to 4:30pm.
Renowned artist and Archibald finalist Jandamarra Cadd will officially open the exhibition at 1:00pm on Saturday and all are invited.
Artists will be demonstrating their painting skills throughout the 3 days on site. Come and chat with them and learn more about their unique approach.
THEME: 'Back to the Sixties'! Each of the member artists will paint one painting to the theme of the 1960's. The rest of the artwork will be at the artists' discretion and ranges from landscapes to portraits to still life to seascapes to abstract.....what do they say? "SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE!" Not only paintings, but brilliant crafts persons are also displaying and selling their incredible creations.
