The Royal Queensland Art Society (Brisbane Branch) Inc. is proudly presenting a special retrospective exhibition showcasing the works of the late Adrienne Gale.
Entitled 'Colour and Light', the stunning exhibition will feature a diverse selection of Adrienne's celebrated artworks, including vibrant landscapes, intricate genre scenes and life drawing.
Adrienne was a visual artist for most of her life, first as a commercial artist in Sydney in the 1950s and then, after a break to raise her four children, as a figurative painter in Brisbane. Her formal education was a Diploma at Queensland College of Art, followed by a Bachelor of Arts from Queensland University, in the 1980s.
Adrienne's style of painting was influenced by her studies, particularly of the Fauves and Impressionists, together with her love of the beauty of the sub-tropical environment of South East Queensland.
Her radiant approach to life was reflected in a masterly use of colour, using oils on linen, gouache and watercolour to create striking works.
Landscapes were a significant part of her output and featured scenes, not only from South East Queensland but also from Bundanon near the Shoalhaven River, Tasmania after a car tour, Ireland, UK and France after a walking holiday.
Adrienne taught painting and life drawing at TAFE, mentored recently graduated art students and conducted art workshops in Central Queensland. She was well loved by family and friends and has been sorely missed.
Adrienne's artworks are currently held in private and corporate collections in Australia, USA, UK, Japan and Greece. This is a special opportunity to view a selection in the intimate Petrie Terrace Galley, home of the Royal Queensland Art Society Brisbane Branch Inc.
The exhibition will be open to the public from 20 to 31 March, 10am to 3.30pm daily. Entry is free and all are welcome. For more information on the exhibition, please visit rqas.com.au/event/colour_light
