Quick mum, over here, I think I have found him. Of Peace and War Exhibition
In the 100th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli, Sunshine Coast Council presents a sensitive display of stories and artworks Of Peace and War from March 25 to May 10 at Caloundra Regional Gallery.
 
Watercolours and oils provide a modern-day experience of visiting the WW1 battlefields of Northern France, while artworks on loan from the Dalai Lama's Art School in Dharamsala offer messages of peace. Ceramic works, artist books, poetry and oral histories capture the empathic nature of humanity.
 
All are welcome to attend the Of Peace and War official opening at 11am on Thursday, March 26 and enjoy a morning tea and a special guest performance by singer-songwriter Fred Smith.
 
Fred Smith will be holding a very special concert at 7pm on Thursday, March 26 and will present songs from the acclaimed album Dust of Uruzgan complemented by a stunning series of projected photographs from Afghanistan. Smith spent two years working as a tribal and political advisor alongside Australian Forces in Uruzgan Province. He wrote a collection of songs from his experiences, playing concerts on the Multinational Base in Tarin Kowt where his music became legendary. Tickets are $15 per person and bookings are a must via council's gallery website.
 
Visit Council's gallery website for bookings, public programs and more information.
