I wish to announce that the opening of the Wallace House Oils & Acrylics Art Exhibition due this evening at 5.30 pm has been cancelled due to inclement weather and local flooding.
The Exhibition will be open over the weekend between 9.30 am and 3.30 pm. The Minister for Emergency Services visiting Noosa presently may wish to stay overnight and visit Wallace House tomorrow morning.
Many thanks to Cr. Frank Wilkie who visited Wallace House this morning in anticipation of the Opening. He took time to talk to the President, Mr. Robert Harman and myself and that was greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your support
An explosion of colour and imagination will be on exhibition at Wallace House from the 24th of August. Members of the Oils & Acrylics Group have participated in a plethora of workshops by such luminaries as Jenni Kelly, Metka Skrobar and Eden Scott and much of the work on exhibition is a result of these workshops.
The diversity of the works illustrates the growth of this group into artists capable of the most up-to-date and sought after contemporary pieces of artworks.
Subject matter varies from figurative to local scenes and still life, all highlighting the varied interests of the group. The members are skilled in either oil or acrylic medium and some practise in both mediums. The techniques range from mixed media to abstract and impressionistic as well as representational.
The Exhibition opens from 5.30pm on the 24th of August with a Wine and Cheese event. The Opening Address will be given by Noosa Division 4 Councillor Frank Wilkie.
Entry on opening night is with a Gold Donation at the door. The Exhibition closes on the 26th of August. Wallace House is in Wallace Park (next to the Library) in Noosaville. The Exhibition will remain open until the 26th of August with the doors open from 9.30 am until 3.30 pm.
