Start the weekend early by attending Friday³Live @ the Gallery. This is a fun up-late program held at the gallery on the third Friday of every month. Includes music, creativity, food, bar, talks and performances.

Guided by exhibiting artist Robyn Shaw, explore how to use memory constructively to enhance drawing: in particular, life-drawing. Gesture is not tangible – it must be felt. Feeling the action or attitude of a pose with your own muscles is the basis for remembering and observing the action and attitude of the model. Hands-on exercises aimed at training the memory will be incorporated into drawing as a way to capture the gesture of the model

Robyn Shaw: I grew up in Caloundra and it has left its mark on me. My father was a photographer and instilled in me a love of the aesthetic. I pursued this love throughout my life – studying drawing and painting and participating in group exhibitions in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. I attained my BA in Fine Arts and Visual Culture in 2014 and completed BA Honours (Humanities) in 2018.  Movement and gesture in artwork are of the utmost importance, whether drawing/ painting the figure or the isolation of a coastal landscape.
