January 12 - 30
Gallery 1 - In the time of the Salt Wind
Shirley Strano, Judith Rosenberg, Patricia Stevenson, Truda Landreth and Victoria Atkins
The exhibition In The Time Of The Salt Wind is a look at the coastal environment through the eyes of five local self-confessed obsessive artists with a passion for printmaking.
The artists explore the Great Sandy national park, Coolum rock pools, the Noosa river, regional flora, paddocks, forest reserves, hinterland ranges and even the experience of a tree falling on a house during a storm. The artists present very personal visions of these places which are either where they live or visit regularly.
For Victoria Atkins the Cooloola National Park and the Noosa North shore are favourite camping places. 'Every time l visit, it is different - its either the weather, the seasons, or the fires that may have burnt through the landscape. Shirley Strano is interested in the weathering of the landscape. For her it is so worn down. 'The bones show and mightly tectonic forces of the distant past are clearly evident'. Judith Rosenberg displaysthe beauty of the upper reaches of the Noosa river but the fear of its destruction is never far from her mind.
The exhibition presents a range of printmaking techniques including lino-prints, etchings, collagraphs and mono-prints. The exhibition will open free to the public on Friday evening the 14th of January at 6.00pm. And on Saturday the 15th of January from 1 to 3pm the artists will present a printmaking demonstration and talk about their work.
