With a huge thanks to Sekisui House Australia for their support in letting us take over this beautiful space to paint and be inspired!

A Growing Exhibition as the Art Residency Progresses!

We will be converting this amazing hanging system into our Gallery for the 8 days and with the help of Muriel we plan to fill these boards with Work – both from Muriel’s brush and the Workshop Participants.

Work may be for sale at the end of the Workshop Weekend, if the Participants agree to part with it – this may be hard as we may all decide to keep the work as a memento for ourselves, we will see – so if you would like to drop in over the days of the Art Residency – probably from the 4 to 9th September 2016 – you will be able to see the Exhibition grow!

At the moment these Boards are showcasing the gorgeous houses that Sekisui House have available here on the Sunshine Coast – so I am sure you are welcome to drop in any time and see these and talk with their sales people – you will be joining a vibrant community here on The Coast!

      Hi Muriel – glad you like – it is an awesome space – but this also reflects the beauty and peace of the Sunshine Coast – yet not forgetting that we have a huge surf culture and the energy of this is not to be forgotten!

      So this is a dynamic space for our Art Residency Program and yes – thanks to Sekisui House Australia – to Evan and Bec this has been a fantastic option to take over their Property Design Centre and create the most excellent ‘Pop Up’ location we could have imagined!!

      So cool, and the fun of having you and Yuko will be amazing! Cheers Wyn
