Channelling the Artastic

A diverse range of artwork on show.

It’s Artastic time again! Noosa Arts and Crafts’ annual Art Sale sees our members fill Wallace House with their artwork.

This year Artastic will also be a celebration of the life of its founder and life member Tricia Bradford who died in May 2020. Tricia was a dynamic force within the art world and local community. Awarded a Queensland medal for her services to art in the community in 2015, she will long be remember as an inspirational artist and mentor.

Local art should always to be celebrated – it is an important activity not only for the artist but also the viewer. Art is an expression of thoughts and observations by the artist which in turn inspires differing interpretations and emotions in the viewer. We aspire to channel Tricia’s Artastic spirit throughout the year.

The Artastic sale features all media – from acrylics to watercolour and from ceramics to fabric art. This weekend event was originally created by Tricia to not only showcase the outstanding work of our members but also to give visitors a chance to chat to the artists while experiencing our centre for creativity at its best.

Wallace House has undergone major renovations and made great strides towards reducing its carbon footprint with the addition of solar panels. Our

Ceramic Centre is now a light, airy and efficient work space for members. After a long period of inactivity, with renovations and Covid-19 restrictions, the kilns are once again firing and our ceramicists back working.

Each participating artist will have space to display their work. Visitors will be able to stroll around the gallery and rooms at their leisure and perhaps enjoy some freshly-baked goodies in our Pop-up Caf¨¦ served on our sunny verandah.

An Artastic chance to immerse yourself in creativity for an hour or two.

We are justifiably proud of our members for their wide-ranging and innovative skills which they willingly share for us all to enjoy.

The Tricia Bradford Memorial Artastic Art Sale will be at Wallace House, 1 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on January 23 and 24 from 9am to 3pm.
