The Half Dozen Group is an established artists group, which has been exhibiting in Brisbane since 1940. Members are professional and hobby artists from all walks of life, and all ages.
Running from the 5th to 10th of July, this popular annual event is free to attend and will be officiated by Cr Nicole Johnson on Opening Night, Friday 8th July, 6.30pm.
The Half Dozen Group of Artists was formed in 1940 by six former members of the Royal Queensland Art Society; today membership has grown to over 100 esteemed artists and the group regularly hosts a range of well-established events throughout the year; including exhibitions, workshops and public lectures.
The annual exhibition held by the Half Dozen Group of Artists is one particular highlight as it gives members a chance to exhibit and sell their work to the wider public. There will be a wide range of art styles on display - including portraits, landscapes and abstract works.
Although artists will be displaying their own work, there is still a cohesiveness about the group, particularly with the group project, the Lambert Wall, which is always a hit. The group project allows artists to display their individual interpretation of a chosen theme; this year it is 'EXPOSED: A figure study which reveals aspect/s of the human form and/or the human condition'. Given the scope of this year's theme and the broad world experience and skill of the artists, it will be a display not to be missed.
Whether you are a fellow artist or art enthusiast this is a great opportunity to support the local arts scene. The exhibition will be open to the public from the 5th to 10th of July 2016. Entry is free.
