Exciting Easter Art Exhibition at Coolum
This year, the Coolum Art Collective celebrate 50 years of inspiring the community with wonderful paintings and continues the creative inspiration and goals of its original members, promoting artistic endeavours to the wider community. The Coolum Art Collective consists of about 20 artists who exhibit their work during Easter and Spring. Hundreds of people attend the exhibitions to see the group's new creations.
This year, the Easter exhibition will showcase over 200 artworks from the Sunshine Coast's top artists and offers visitors a chance to purchase unique artworks in a range of styles and budgets to suit everyone. It's also a great family event, with young and old enjoying the work on offer, wandering through the Coolum Civic Centre as you would do in a real art gallery.

You will see stunning portraits, dreamy landscapes, and blissful seascapes using a variety of mediums, but best of all will be the themed works "back to the '60s" which will bring plenty of smiles and memories. Entry is free and visitors can also vote for their favourite artist in the People's Choice Award.
Each exhibiting artist will enter one themed work.
So if you are looking for something different to do during Easter, hop to the Coolum Civic Centre (next to Coolum library)for an artistic extravaganza! The Easter Art Exhibition is open daily from 9.30am till 4.30pm from Friday 19th April to Sunday 21st April 2019.
