Spectacular art!

The 2018 Brisbane Rotary Art Spectacular is held this year in the iconic Central Plaza One building in Queen Street in the heart of Brisbane’s CBD. This will be the 39th annual Rotary Art Spectacular, and to quote their website,

it is Queensland’s largest and most prestigious annual art exhibition. It has raised almost $2 million for Brisbane Rotary community projects and local charity partners. The exhibition is an amazing collection of local, interstate and international artists offering beautiful artwork for the most discerning tastes. We are proud to support AEIOU Foundation’s life changing program for children with autism and are delighted to nominate them as the major beneficiary for 2018.” 

Carmen and I are among the many artists whose work has been selected. I will be delivering our paintings next weekend for the week long exhibition. If you are visiting Brisbane city, this exhibition would be well worth the visit.  The exhibition is open from  Monday 14th May 8am – 6pm until Saturday 19th May at 12pm.

Here is a preview of the work that we will have hanging as part of this large art event.

Cheers, Joanne

  1. Good luck with the exhibit! I love them all … and especially the first!

  2. Thanks so much for the nice comment, Denise. Yes it is very striking. I think it is the graphic quality of a lino print and of course they are cats!
