THE LIGHT OF THE SUNSET EXHIBITION & FESTURI 2007
Community members are invited to attend the official opening of THE LIGHT OF THE SUNSET and launch of FESTURI: a multicultural celebration 2007.
The event will include the presentation of art work of 13 Sunshine Coast artists including photographs, paintings, prints and collage that explore the visual, cultural and emotional response to Sunsets in different countries and cultures; plus a performance by acclaimed percussionist Fatima.
The official opening event will be held at 6:30 pm on Friday 17th August and the exhibition will be on display from the 14th - 25th August (Monday - Saturday 10:00 am - 4:00 pm) at the Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre.
Katie Edmiston, exhibition organiser said: "The exhibition has grown out of a continued partnership between Noosa Council and FESTURI that has allowed for local artists, from a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, practices and places, to come together and creatively explore culture and community".
This event kicks off FESTURI 2007 which includes a range of other events and activities across the Sunshine Coast in the following weeks including: Gypsy Fire Concert on the 24th August and Latin Dance Night on 25th August both at Lake Kawana Community Centre. The Grand Celebration will be held on Sunday 26th at the University of the Sunshine Coast.
