bribie island art gallery (1)

For the fourth year since its inception, the Contemporary Arts Practices Working Together Group at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre is presenting its annual Eclectica exhibition. Opening night, to which all are welcome, is Friday 28 June at 6 pm, but the display runs for almost three weeks from 25 June till 12 July.

In addition to the Eclectica art, this year’s showcase features monochrome landscapes, wearable art, encaustic work, revamped shoes and the promise of being unique, expressive, impressive and creative. Eclectica is the perfect name for the multimedia artistry of the CAP Group members. The word ‘eclectic’ describes a combination of many different individual styles, themes, mediums or inspirations pooled from a variety of sources. Membership in the Eclectica group is highly sought after due largely to the lively program and mandatory fun had by all.

They have held two successful exhibitions at Vianta Espresso and Wine Bar in Beerwah during May this year and in 2018, the Wearable Art Fashion Parade in the Matthew Flinders Gallery in March, Island Fringe – a Bribie Perspective exhibition also in May at the Redcliffe Old Fire Station Gallery, and in September a joint exhibition called Both Ways with the Maleny Art Group.

The CAP is a group of experienced artists using a diverse range of media which push boundaries in painting, the use of textiles, printmaking, glassblowing, woodcarving, jewelry design, pottery, and sculpture. Among their number are former and working art teachers and art prize winners. New members or visitors are always welcome. Check out the current timetable at the reception in the arts centre. And phone 3408 9288 for further information. We are at 191 Sunderland By Debra Mieth Drive, Banksia Beach.
