Easter exhibition

Easter seems to have come around quickly - even though it is later in the year than it often is. It feels a bit fast, because it doesn't seem all that long ago that Maleny Printmakers were having their November collectables exhibition, and here we are again with our Fine Art exhibition!

The exhibitions being held on the four days of the Eater weekend, from 10am - 4pm each day.  Once again we are transforming Sonja's studio into a gallery space, and the show will be at 37 Coral St, Maleny (behind Mukti).

I knew that the first few months of the year would see us away a fair bit and with other key commitments, so I had not really intended to enter any work. Then I said yes I would, and then later on realised that the piece I had in mind had recently been shown in an exhibition up here and therefore was ineligible. Eek.

Suddenly I had to do some printmaking!

The theme for the exhibition is 'Journeys' which leaves lots of room for interpretation. For some it will be reminders of trips and travels; for some it will reflect their personal or spiritual journeys. I think it will be an interesting and diverse range of works.

I gave some glimpses of where I was headed back in this post; and the works are now framed and ready to submit.

 Called "Weekend Getaway" the words are the names of towns along the Range here - and they are in the sequence of a Sunday drive or a weekend visit. As I say in my blurb:

"The hinterland is a wonderful place to visit for a weekend getaway; to drive amongst the lush green hills and valleys, stopping off at all the different towns and villages".

Perhaps they will be a reminder to somebody of their visit here over Easter; or perhaps some tourism folk might think they are a good idea!

We are looking forward to sharing our passion for printmaking again, and I for one am hoping that November doesn't come around quite as quickly...


  1. Lovely idea, great prints!
    Good luck with the show and everything else.

    1. Thanks Anna - you have been busy as well so I'm sure you can imagine what it feels like to suddenly realise you have to do one more thing! Thanks of your kind words - I hope the show is a success for everybody. Go well.

  2. I imagine these would have a great appeal with visitors to the Range or even those who live up here in this paradise. x

    1. It would be nice if they did Susan! I can imagine them in that sort of setting, I hope others can too!

  3. Hope I can get up to see it. You all do such inspiring work.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
