The Colour, Form and Reflections Exhibition is an exciting exposition of the beauty truly talented artists can create from mediums such as, watercolours, gold and silver and glass and wood.

You will see how the COLOUR radiates from the translucency of watercolour paintings depicting various aspects of our community and environment. Members of the Bribie Island Watercolour Working Together Group will be showing their renderings of historic villages, portraits, flowers, seascapes and landscapes.

The Exhibition will provide you with a new sense of the diversity of FORM and how shapes can be different but just as beautiful. You can compare the beauty, shape and texture of Sue and Elmar Rothbrust's handcrafted gold and silver jewellery with the innovative wood and leadlight glass sculptures from Shirley Heapy.

Then, once you have taken in the Exhibition, you will appreciate how the REFLECTIONS exuding from all three artistic dimensions, painted reflections in water, reflections from silver and gold jewellery and from the glass sculptures are all part of our enjoyment of artistic endeavour.

For those of you who can attend on Saturday, 13 August any time between 11.00am and 2.00pm will have the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists. If you miss out on the Exhibit's artists there will be other artists from the Centre available during normal Gallery hours to meet visitors and do demonstrations.
