Four flavours of art to open at Gatakers Artspace in M'boro

GATAKERS Artspace visitors can enjoy four diverse flavours of art at this Friday night's gala exhibition opening event.

In Gallery 1, enjoy the tempting delights served up by Fraser Coast amateur and professional photographers in the Relish Food and Wine Festival Photography Competition.

Entrants were asked to create images showing how they "savour the moment" for the competition, organised as part of the fantastic Relish Food and Wine Festival at Maryborough's historic Portside on Saturday, June 8.

In Gallery 2, Fraser Coast artist Carol M. Lumsden offers a charming collection of paintings and pastels in E Motion.

The works are inspired by places and subjects that have caught her fascination during her career - buildings, sports stars, horses - as well as a focus on movement.

Fur and Feathers in Gallery 3 is a celebration of learning and achievement, regardless of age.

The exhibition showcases the latest artworks by students of the Maisie Kaufmann Learning Centre and The Paint Pit Studio.

The Maisie Kaufmann Learning Centre provides training in everyday life skills for adults with limited abilities.

With the encouragement of volunteer Diane Carruthers, the students have also been exploring how to express themselves through visual art, learning confidence and skills along the way.

The Paint Pit Studio, owned and run by local artist Robbyn Gergos, is a place where children can learn about art and produce their own art in a professional studio atmosphere.

Featuring in Gallery 4 will be Mount Walsh is Easy by Fraser Coast artist and educator Wilhelmus Breikers.

Rather than display completed works, the exhibition is a process of exploration of a subject - Mount Walsh near Biggenden.

The Gatakers Artspace gallery will be transformed into a studio, with Breikers working on site using wet and dry media on June 4, 7, 11, 14, 16 and 18 (with no visitation on those days).

The progressive results of his creative labours will then be available for viewing on the remaining June days, hung in the gallery picture bars and left around the space.

All are welcome to join in the official opening function on Friday night from 6pm at Gatakers Artspace, 311 Kent St, Maryborough.

For more information, phone 4190 5723 or email gatakersartspace@frasercoast.qld.gov.au.
