In keeping with a reputation for featuring some of the most outstanding works by local artists, the Mathew Flinders Art Gallery in the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre will be exhibiting a display by renowned coloured pencil artist and Bribie Island Seaside Museum Venue Manager, Leonie Meyers and her students from March 5th through until March 18th.

Leonie is an artist who has a wonderful understanding of the correct combination of colours and dimensions and her entry in the 2017 Mathew Flinders Art Prize was an image of her niece sitting on a mangrove branch and won the People’s choice award. This was a sign that this medium is finally being accepted as art and Leonie says that anyone who thinks that coloured pencil work is child’s play should think again.

‘This form of art calls for exacting patience in order to bring all the coloured pencil strokes together,’ Leonie said.

This exhibition is one that art enthusiasts should not miss out on, especially considering that it is a chance to view a complete collection of this form of art.

The Bribie Island Community Arts Centre is on Sunderland Drive at Banksia Beach and is open each day except Mondays from 10 am. For more information, you can call the centre on 3408 9588.
