Seaview goes Mobile
Seaview artists have opened their “mobile gallery” at Lake Kawana Community Centre for the month of November. Generally open to the public from 9am to 5pm weekdays this public art wallspace has been set alight with colour.
Tricia Taylor has hung her award winning flowers as well as her well known seascapes.
Sue needham’s works are contrasting…one was inspired by a visit to the telegraph station in Central Australia and named Outback Waterhole.
The other is ‘Forest’, oil painting on linen and is typical of Australian bush.
Gaynor Hardinge’s contempory abstracts are always inspiring.
Janet Matthews pieces feature a garden theme, colourful and reminding us of spring.
Glenys Fentiman’s mosaic displays the beauty and diversity of the Caloundra region. From the Glasshouse Mountains to Bribie Island her coloured and textured glass mosaic is like no other. Very unique.
Next time you are driving past Kawana Lakes drop in to have a look!

Cynthia Goes for Gold!
Next time you are in the gallery take a good look at Cynthia’s textile artworks. They are amazing in detail and the work involved is quite intricate. Each quilt has a theme and a personality. One artwork “Gold Rush” was made for the Go for Gold themed exhibition for the Quilter’s Guild 2000 Exhibition, and inspired by our underground wealth and open cut mines. This piece now hangs in the offices of a major mining company in central Queensland.

We are open everyday until Christmas.
Rich Meets Surf Girl
Recently, on a particular Saturday at the gallery, a pretty young girl exclaimed excitedly “It’s mummy! It’s mummy!” and then disappeared out of the gallery. She returned with mum (Liz Sweet from Shelly Beach) to show her the art work by duty artist Rich Oxley depicting a lone female surfer (Liz!) entering the water at Happy Valley. It was difficult to work out who was more surprised, Rich or Liz, particularly as the work had only just been completed and hung in the gallery four days earlier. With communications the way they are, the word was out and the rest of the day was punctuated with a trail of Liz’s friends eagerly wanting a sneak peek of this unassuming surfer. They were unanimous in agreeing that there was no better place for the work to be hung than in the home of Liz herself (where it will become yet another talking piece alongside Liz’s other surfing memorabilia).Photograph by Jan Powell
