‘Through Our Eyes’ by Art Whitsunday

‘Through Our Eyes’ is a collaboration by members of Art Whitsunday Inc. to highlight aspects of the way they, as individuals view life in the Whitsundays.

These works reflect how each artist has depicted their immediate environment. Some of the artworks are in response to the natural beauty of the Whitsundays whilst others have incorporated the human influences on their surrounding environs. The genre and media used are as varied as our members, from the novice art enthusiast to the professional artist, of all ages and backgrounds.

The final artworks range from, studying the minutiae to encompassing the broad expanse of the landscape, from a tropical rainforest to the Great Barrier Reef. It brings into play, through the eyes of various artists, a collage of imagery which demonstrates the interactions between how we, as individuals view the natural environment.

The media used includes relief prints, cyanotypes, photography, watercolour and acrylic painting, works on paper and artist books.

This exhibition will be on display in the Lagoons Gallery in the Botanic Gardens Café from Wednesday, May 29 to Sunday, June 23.

The Café is open Wednesday to Friday 9am to 3pm and weekends, from 8am to 4pm. For more information about this exhibition, please contact the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens on phone (07) 4952 7300 or email botanic@mackay.qld.gov.au
