Past in spotlight for 2015 Floating Land launch
The next Noosa Regional Gallery exhibition will feature artworks and iconic images showcasing the past 14 years of Floating Land.
Opening on Saturday 29 August at 2pm, the exhibition marks the beginning of Floating Land 2015, which runs for seven weeks.
Local artists and those from as far away as Victoria and Western Australia have contributed original artworks, samples and images of their works for inclusion in the retrospective exhibition.
“We are delighted with the response to our call-out for the retrospective,” says Nina Shadforth, Director Noosa Regional Gallery.
“Artists across Australia have sent us maquettes, video blogs and images of their work, allowing us to mount an exhibition which highlights the passion surrounding Floating Land,” said Nina.
Floating Land commenced as a conversation between artists about art in the environment, and the conversation continues in 2015.
Floating Land: Reflect and Re-imagine will reflect on the past and look to the future with artists and the community continuing the conversation about art in the environment.
Floating Land 2015 will feature art installations and workshops at Noosa Regional Gallery and the Tewantin and Boreen Point foreshores.
The Arts Program at Boreen Point, over the October long weekend, will be a special focus for this year’s event, featuring artists at work, large scale art installations, community workshops and roaming musicians.
The launch, on Saturday 29 August, is open to the public as we commence celebrating this partnership between Council, artists and the community.
