Check out the Teachers' works
The Bribie Island Community Arts Centre is staging a first-time exhibition series to honour and showcase art teachers and tutors in the Matthew Flinders Gallery. It is called The Masters & Apprentices Exhibition.
It opens on the 9th December 2016 at 6 pm with drinks and nibbles. A gold coin donation on entry will be welcome.
It will be three x two-week exhibitions by a Master (ie Tutor) and Apprentices (ie students) splitting the Matthew Flinders Gallery to show their work.
Masters (Art Teachers) Gail Greening and Alex Ferguson, Bribie Island Community Arts Centre galleries curator Day Ananda and Master (art teacher) Terry Bailey.
It will serve to highlight the wonderful art teachers who have tutored at the Arts Centre and the artists who got their start and inspiration from same.
It's not often teachers get to show their work alongside their students and it is an interesting revelation for pupils to see their "Master's'' style and ideas manifest.
The Masters and Apprentices Exhibition tells of the ongoing value the Arts Centre gives the Bribie Community in drawing and stimulating art talent and variety. It presents an opportunity for students to "get on the wall'' and see the work of their teachers as well.
First up in the Master and Apprentices series is Buderim artist Terry Bailey. Then follows by local artists Alex Ferguson, Leslie Swallow and Gail Greening, who teach at the Bribie Island Arts Centre and at U3A Bribie.
The concept of Masters and Apprentices represents a new direction with the splitting of the BICAS Matthew Flinders Gallery to cater for smaller, joint and eclectic exhibitions.
