There’s no denying that the Contemporary Art Practices Group’s recent “Eclectica 3” exhibition in the Mathew Flinders Gallery demonstrated the absolute versatility of the artists involved but as if that display wasn’t enough proof, the group have once again presented their talents to gallery visitors with the “Tiny Treasures” exhibition which only ran for eleven days until 20th July.

The tiny six inch by four-inch works demonstrated a wonderful use of colours across a range of themes and mediums that included acrylic, coloured pencil, watercolour and mixed media. As well as the very successful exhibition at the Mathew Flinders Gallery, The Contemporary Art Practices group has just had an exhibition at the Vianta Café in Beerwah and in 2019 they will again exhibit their works at the Vianta and also the Redcliffe Fire Station Gallery as well as Eclectica 4 here on the island. With the 2018 Mathew Flinders Art Prize due to open on July 27th, anticipations are high amongst art enthusiasts who expect the exhibition to be better than ever before.

The Mathew Flinders Gallery is within the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre which is open on each day except Sunday from 10 am until 4 pm. Anyone needing more information about the extensive range of activities there or perhaps about becoming a volunteer can either drop into the centre which is on Sunderland Drive at Banksia Beach or give them a call on 3408 9288.

A highly successful sales and leadership career working in a number of different and very competitive industries. Engaging with decision makers at all levels in business and government. Three decades employed by corporations, SME businesses in senior roles and almost twelve years operating as a freelance contractor has equipped me well for all aspects of business. Whether leading and mentoring sales teams, or in a direct sales role I enjoy the challenge to meet and exceed expectations. Making a real and tangible difference in either a team environment or as an individual is an important personal goal I have consistently achieved throughout my career. In all of my business and personal dealings over the years there is one issue that stands out above all others - communication. Excellent communication skills creates trust, helps with mutually beneficial outcomes and above all cements long lasting positive relationships. I strive everyday to communicate effectively with the people I encounter.
