The monthly change of artwork at the Old SchoolhouseGallery guarantees our visitors will see something new every month. It is also an opportunity for members to showcase a “body of work” as a feature artist.

The next exhibitionis inspired by the natural beauty of the Queensland coast. Bayside artists Gail Higgins and Kathy Jonas have collaborated to bring Coastto the gallery during August.The paintings by Gail and Kathy are complemented by Geoff Sear’s quirky sculptures of found objects and the exhibition comes together as a celebration of nature and the beauty of the bayside.

The bay islands are a feature in Kathy’s beautiful acrylic seascapes, and her canvases show her deep connection to all things coastal.She brings a touch of whimsy to the exhibition with her delightful fantasy sea-horses in brilliant colour.

Gail is an award-winning wildlife artist well known for her paintings and drawings of Australian native birds.For this exhibition her work includes delicate pencil drawings and paintings in pastel and acrylic of birds of the coastal fringe.

Geoff delights with his sculptures, as well as timber-framed mirrors, small wooden boxes and cheese boards.
