Eclectic gallery exhibition launches this weekend at Mill
CAPRICORN Coast artists Sambuddhanand Saraswati and Catherine Boreham are inspired by the landscape that surrounds them.
That's why the aptly named Sand Between my Toes exhibition at the Mill Gallery will feature their gorgeous paintings of our picturesque beach backdrops, among many other artists' works.
Paintings, original prints, pastels, ceramics, fibre art and more, the eclectic display is the gallery's Christmas exhibition opening on Saturday, which both Catherine and Sambuddhanand are looking forward to.
Catherine described herself as a representational or realism artist, usually working with acrylics.
"I've been a member of the gallery for about eight years, but the pieces I'm featuring in this exhibition are new ones," she said.
"I grew up by the water and I love the beach, so a lot of my work is of beaches."
Sambuddhanand said she didn't really have a particular style, dabbling in many different mediums including printmaking, oils, acrylics and water colours.
"It's always interesting to see what people will come up with for our members exhibitions," she said.
Nine artists will display their work at the gallery including new artist Jesse Samuel Wood.
Other artists will include May Briggs, Peta Lloyd, Anni Simmons, Emma Ward and more.
The gallery is also excited to see their iconic Fig trees are being saved, with works commenced to upgrade the area around the base of the trees recently.
WHEN: Saturday from 6pm
WHERE: The Mill Gallery, Normanby St
Exhibition closes end of January and is open from Tuesday to Sunday's 10am to 4pm.
