“Place of Origin” will be open to preview from 10am Tuesday 6th August, with the official opening taking place at 6pm Wednesday 7th August. Coinciding with the first days of Brisbane’s Ekka when traditionally the city meets the bush, the exhibition will run until Sunday 11th August.

August 20th to September 1st Wendy Chenoweth Borrowed Lines
Indooroopilly artist Wendy Chenoweth presents her fourth exhibition in which her large oil paintings feature figures in lonely landscapes who hope and struggle, love and dream.
For inspiration Wendy turns to 19th century poet, Henry Longfellow and others whose wonderful lyrical words spark an immediate creative response for her. She has “borrowed” the words of the poets and interpreted them in her own way, transporting them to another time and place, but retaining the mood and intention of the poet.
Each viewer is invited to interpret Wendy’s images in the light of his/hers own life experience; because Wendy’s work speaks to the heart, each individual will see some different meaning. Visitors to previous exhibitions have spoken of the emotional connection and personal impact of her work.
Wendy’s exhibition will also showcase Belgian sculptor Els Houwen whose joyous figures add a three dimensional experience to ” Borrowed Lines”
Wendy and Els hope that their work will give joy, meaning and insight to those who attend the exhibition.

September 17th to 29th Warren Palmer & Susan Leway “I Never Promised You A ROSE GARDEN”
The works in this show consist of Photographs, Pastel & Mixed Media and Ceramics & Mixed Media.
Although the subject matter varies, the dominate theme concerns the senseless cruelty and vicious treatment of wild (& in some cases domestic) animals. Viz “Shooter”
Its not all sad and bad however, because in some photographic work by Susan, her wonderful sense of fun and humour sneaks into the images viz ” This little Piggy went to Market” and “The Dog sat on the Tuckerbox” “Tip Me Over, Pour Me Out” sort of sums up the emotion and energy that went into the making of this joint show.
October 1st to 13th Arts Connect Inc.
Artists were invited to venture into new areas of creative exploration for this exhibition delving into the multitude of directions this theme has to offer from the obvious four elements of nature to the 15th century medieval origins of the primordial or primitive and todays ideas of basic, essential, central, underlying or singular.

October 15th to 27th Julie Whitehead Floral Enchantment
This solo exhibition is culmination of a lifelong obsession with the enchanting world and true beauty of nature’s florals.
Brisbane floral artist, Julie Whitehead’s work encapsulates energy, beauty, love, strength, colour and movement, with the heart at the centre of it all. Her floral paintings express a delicate sensuality yet these fragile flowers are resilient enough to grow and survive. Flowers are also a symbol of love and are frequently given as a gift to express love, gratitude and kindness.
“Art is energy. I love to work with flowers because of their delicate beauty which shows off how clever nature really is.” Julie Whitehead Artist
Julie predominantly works on large canvases as the overall impact of the intense floral colour engages the audience. More recently Julie has turned to using a resin finish on some of her smaller works that have resulted in an impactful, stunning finish with gold and silver leaf accents.
Specialising in the creation of original, exquisite floral paintings and working with only the highest quality oils & acrylics, each work becomes unique. The creative process begins with photographing her floral subjects from many different angles & with varying light conditions.
While creating the image on canvas, Julie uses her skill to bring it to glorious life with vibrant colours, intricate design and an endless amount of love.
Julie was accepted into art school in Melbourne at the young age of 17 and went on to major in painting and drawing for the next four years.
Julie works have been displayed in exhibitions throughout Brisbane, in commercial buildings, office receptions and foyers and private collectors have commissioned works specifically for their homes both in Australia and abroad.
