1 July 2005 Gallery exhibitions sure to satisfy diverse tastes
It promises be a busy - and stimulating - night at the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery when two exhibitions showcasing three separate artists are officially opened next week.
Caloundra City Mayor, Don Aldous, said the exhibitions - as thought-provoking as they are different - showcase the works of Sunshine Coast artists Corrie Wright, Stephen Hogarth and Ashley Ramage.
"Between Corrie's exhibition - She Grows Up and Now She Grows Down and Stephen and Ashley's joint exhibition - Dual Dynamics - residents and visitors are guaranteed to witness a diverse range of visual styles," Cr Aldous said.
Acting Gallery Director, John Waldron, said Corrie's exhibtion is an interactive installation using digital print, printmaking and paper where the dress is not only used as a metaphor for being female but also used to hold a rich history of patterning.
"Essentially, Corrie's work allows the audience to become not just viewers but active participants in the interpretation of her work," Mr Waldron said.
Meanwhile, Stephen and Ashley's joint exhibition allows them to highlight their divergent styles while exploring the collaborative process.
"Ashley's talents extend to painting, mixed media, sculpture, and computer-based image generation and manipulation while Stephen - a painter who calls himself a 'non-traditional Aboriginal artist' - draws inspiration from the Australian people and land."
The exhibition - currently on show at the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery and running through Sunday August 7 - will be officially opened on Friday July 8 at 6:30pm.
