Art Exhibition 2017-07-24T15:08:11+00:00

Spiral hosted the Art Show at the Sunshine Coast Agricultural Show in the Main Pavilion this year and what a fantastic exhibition it was.

Thank You’s

Spiral would like to thank a number of people who made this exhibition what it was.

Firstly I would like to thank all of the artists for putting in pieces to be exhibited. There was an amazing diversity and array of art that was submitted and it is a clear indicator that there are some amazing artists in the Sunshine Coast.

Spiral would also like to thank some people who volunteered their time and skills over the week before the show for set up, across the show long weekend in the gallery and also the day after the show for pack down. Without these volunteer hours, the exhibition would not have been possible. Spiral would like to personally thank Dave, Kathy, Sonya, Zoe, Mary, Sebastian, Rebecca, Heather, Kim and Ella, Elaine, Jessica, Lynda and Doug. With a special mention to Cherry who also gave up two days of her time to design and set up the artwork in the room.

I would also like to thank Councillor Jenny McKay who provided Spiral with the opportunity to host this event and all of her support both leading up to the show and throughout the long weekend. In particularly I would also like to thank Helen and Janelle and all of the staff at the Nambour Show Society who were amazingly helpful and supportive of Spiral and the event.

I would like to extend my thank you’s to Terry Clarke from Smart Pups, for all of his time and efforts in collating prizes for the raffle, amongst also attending the duration of the show to sell raffle tickets at the exhibition. I would also like to thank the volunteers that also came along to help Terry, Len and Judith who did an amazing job.

I would like to thank Rowley, who was the judge of the show and Mark who MC’d the exhibition opening.

I would also like to thank all of the sponsors for the Art Prizes. The Nambour RSL who sponsored all the children categories and partially the watercolour section. The Nambour Apex club who sponsored the abstract and traditional sections and partially the watercolour section. The Blacksmiths who also partially sponsored the watercolour section. And lastly, Spiral who sponsored the rest of the sections.

It has been a great first year for Spiral and we have been so amazed at the diversity of entries that have been entered and look forward to working with you all in the future.
