October exhibitions highlight local talent

Exhibitions at Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland in October will showcase the talent of two prominent local art groups.

From 14 – 28 October, ‘Art in the Golden Age’ will showcase artists from the Donald Simpson Centre art groups, while ‘Pigments of the Imagination’ will display works of the Coochie Art Group Inc.

Pigments of the Imagination features new representational and abstract work by The Coochie Art Group Inc members in oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, drawing and open media.

Art in the Golden Age features artworks by members of The Donald Simpson Over 50’s Leisure Centre located in Cleveland, who meet weekly to learn new techniques and receive encouragement to develop a style of their own.

Retirement years are often referred to as ‘The Golden age’ from which this exhibition draws its title and artworks exhibited explore people and places, past encounters and memories.

To celebrate the opening of this event, an official opening will be held 11am Sunday 14 October 2012 at Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland.

If you would like to attend, please RSVP acceptances by Thursday 11 October 2012 to: (07) 3030 4163 or email: gallery@redland.qld.gov.au

A floor talk for both exhibitions will also be held 12 noon Wednesday 17 October 2012 with exhibiting artists.
