“Inside Out, Outside In” … an Exhibition by ART WHITSUNDAY.

13th Aug 2014 - 7th Sep 2014

Art Whitsunday is a local group of approximately sixty artists operating from a community gallery located at Airlie Beach.   Each year the group holds an annual exhibition at the PCYC.  At the end of this exhibition, work is selected from the theme section and presented at the Lagoons Gallery.

This year the theme was 'Inside Out, Outside In', encouraging and challenging artists to integrate and/or transpose the external environment with that of the 'inside'.   It is a bit like bringing your garden into your living room and vice versa.  These selected works have been produced using a wide range of techniques and media which include sculptural pieces.

Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens Lagoons Gallery is open Wednesday to Friday 10 am - 3pm and Weekends from 9am - 4pm
