An exhibition of compelling, colourful art works created in media such as paint, video and clay will be officially opened at the University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery tonight.
The public and the media are welcome to attend the event from 6.30pm and enjoy the new works by artists who teach at Sunshine Coast Institute of TAFE (SCIT).
'True Stories from the Studio' is a collection from painters, print makers, sculptors, ceramic artists and friends who are art teachers at SCIT’s Tewantin campus.
SCIT’s Head of School and Creative Industries Robyn Littlejohn will open tonight’s celebrations at the gallery, located at the University campus on Sippy Downs Drive, Sippy Downs.
USC Gallery Curator Dawn Oelrich said the artists’ combination of teaching and art practice had produced fresh outcomes which would be on display until 1 June.
“The teachers have been inspired by new ideas and methods and interactions with their students in the classroom,” Ms Oelrich said.
The gallery is open free to the public from 10am to 4pm Monday to Saturday and closed Sundays and public holidays.
