HIDDEN TREASURES - NOOSA REGIONAL GALLERY - MAY 20 - JUNE 12
Now in it's third year the annual fund raising function for Noosa Regional Gallery, Hidden Treasures has become a major event. Hidden Treasures was originally conceived when Gallery Director, Kevin Wilson realised that many hundreds of people who had moved to the Sunshine Coast had large collections of art works originally hung in their large city homes but now hidden away in cupboards in their much smaller coastal units.
The Hidden Treasures exhibition gives these art collectors the opportunity to sell their unwanted works in a major regional gallery exhibition. The gallery charges a 20% commission on all sales and these funds go towards new gallery projects. Also, of course, the exhibition gives art collectors the chance to view an eclectic collection of works in one exhibition and to purchase original works.
Hidden Treasures has grown and as well as works from the Sunshine Coast, this year the exhibition will include works from all over SEQueensland and interstate. Already on hand for the exhibition are such works as an Andy Warhol screenprint of Marilyn Monroe (worth over $150,000), two Picasso lithographs, 2 Dali lithographs, an Arthur Boyd, a Charles Blackman and a major collection of Japanese woodblocks.
With works such as these this year's Hidden Treasures promises to be an event of major interest to all art loves. Works can be seen on the gallery website www.noosaregionalgallery.org/treasures
At this time the Gallery Director is calling on all those who would like to place works for sale in the exhibition to call on 5449 5370 to have their works evaluated.
