The Coolum Art Group is a non-profit organisation - a group of around 20 artists who meet together monthly and exhibit twice yearly - an Easter Exhibition and a Spring Exhibition, each held at the Coolum Beach Civic Centre
Coolum art show is a “home decorating opportunity”
A wide range of original artworks from some of the region’s best-known artists and craftsmen will be on display at a special three days Spring Exhibition of Art at Coolum Civic Centre from October 4 to 6.
Collective’s three day spring exhibition will feature art and craft works from some of the Sunshine Coast’s leading artists, and will be officially opened at 2pm Saturday afternoon by acclaimed local artist, Gerrard King, who will also have some examples of his work displayed.
The Coolum Art Collective encourages art lovers to attend, suggesting they might find a beautiful artwork to help decorate their homes or even their businesses.
“The annual spring art show always presents scores of diverse artworks from very talented artists to suit many tastes and budgets,” Coolum Art Collective spokesperson, Almeta said.
“We have a lot of long-term members as well as some very talented new members, and they have been producing some amazing works, on a very diverse array of topics so if folk are looking for something beautiful, floral, contemporary, different, outstanding and conversation starting, abstract, a landscape or a seascape, we encourage them to make their way to the Civic Centre over the weekend. “
“We are very proud of the quality of the artworks at our Spring exhibitions, and this year is no exception; we’re sure there will be some captivating and well-priced works ready to be brought home to brighten up your space.”
The event will also include various displays of postcards, glassware, and craft items for sale, raffles, and more.
The Coolum Art Collective extends an invitation to locals to come to see ways that they can decorate their home with pieces of art from really small to really large - one painting of the ocean, by artist Almeta, for example, measures 150cm x 75cm.
The Coolum Art Collective exhibition will be held at Coolum Civic Centre from Friday, October 4 to Sunday October 6. “Come in and say Hi, and take home a treasure!”
‘Abstract’ by Rosie Jennings is yet another artwork which will be on display over the Spring Exhibition.
