Looking for something a bit serious and spectacular during the holiday season then don't miss the Noosa Regional Gallery's latest blockbuster exhibition. The show is packed with art stars who have been dropped into the desert to make art.

It's a who's who of Australian painters with elder statesmen John Olsen , Tim Storrier and Robert Jacks leading the way. Together with Jason Benjamin, Rodney Pople, David Larwill, Jeff Makin, Mark Schaller, Andrew Sibley, and Hazel Dooney, they set off to work in a number of different locations including William Creek, Lake Eyre, Chambers Pillar, West Macdonnell Ranges and Kings Canyon

The exhibition contains some key paintings by these artists and subject matter ranges from the broad sweep of landscape, to the animals and the people of the desert. Its an absolute beautiful exhibition dripping with paint.

Initiated by D & K Deague through the Deague Family Art Foundation William Creek and Beyond was an ambitious project coordinated by Ken McGregor to enable a group of artists in 2001 to explore some of the most remote areas of Central Australia from different vantage points. Whereas many artist's camps have been held throughout various parts of Australia during the past 170 years none of these earlier camps were provided with the same support and infrastructure as that offered on this occasion.

As a result of this opportunity, Chosen for their diverse range of styles and generational mix this group of established and emerging Australian artists produced a body of work from which a selection has been made to create an exhibition that reflects their interpretations of the Central Australian landscape.

The exhibition has been toured by the Ballarat Art Gallery in Victoria
