Calender of Events:
The month of February will see the Wondai Regional Art Fallery hosting three exhibitions.
“Combination” by Tangled Threads Group (Front gallery)
As a group of textile artists, this exhibition is centred around three main themes – visibility, insert and word challenges. Each work is an individual’s interpretation of the given theme. Due to their versatility, textiles are a most exciting medium which this group exploits in the fullest way possible to fulfil their individual aspirations and goals, and in doing so, create a display that not only they as individuals are excited about, but want to share with gallery visitors for a new experience or a lingering memory.
“Twists and Turns” by Shannus O'Sullivan (Main gallery)
An exhibition of recent works. Shannus is the quintessential genre painter. His evocative paintings draw from the broad tapestry of everyday Australian life. From the frolicking masses on our beaches to the lonely figure isolated and dwarfed by the uncompromising vastness of the outback, his work explores the relationship that Australians have with their environment and each other whilst capturing the bitter-sweet elements of our unique culture. Shannus specializes in Glaze or Indirect painting, a technique which gives his paintings the luminosity and richness of colour his works are renowned for.
“Escape From The Past” by Rhonda Trivett and Rhondda Jones (Third gallery)
Rhonda Trivett & Rhondda Jones believe that painting brings out part of yourself that no one else sees and you feel pleased with yourself. Painting makes them feel they can do something that other people can see and purchase. Instead of just being labelled as having a good heart in the community they feel that their artwork should be part of the community which they live in. When they make a mistake they can fix it and this is a good way of learning. Rhonda Trivett says, “Painting has become one of the escapes from my past and it makes me feel good. Painting releases my anger from the past.”
