Sunshine Coast artists combine talents for exhibition

Stella specialises in the ancient art of rug making with her folk-art style.

Three Sunshine Coast artists have combined their talents for a mixed media exhibition, titled Melange a Trois, at the Pomona Railway Station Gallery, from 27 April.

Stella Edmonson, Tina Pietzsch’s and Suzanne Beaver have all explored and developed different techniques, so the art works to be displayed are imbued with texture, design, and colours to create abundant variety.

Stella specialises in the ancient art of rug making with her folk-art style embellished hooked rug tapestries; Tina’s medium is abstract acrylic paint pouring and modern abstract art.

She also uses the “skins” from her pours to make jewellery. Suzanne works in water colour and acrylic paints, and according to how the mood takes her, varies between traditional to abstract style paintings.

Throughout their lives, they all have always been involved in some form of crafts or the arts, including dancing and acting, until their new passions emerged in more recent years.

Their exhibition will be opened at 11am on Saturday 27 April by notable Sunshine Coast fibre and textile artist, Judy Tompkins. Their exhibition will continue until Wednesday 22 May.

The volunteer-run Pomona Railway Station Gallery is at 10 Station St, Pomona. Opening hours are 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Friday; 10am to 2pm Saturday and Sunday.
