The Gold Coast Art prize is an annual highlight of the art calendar. The first Friends’ social event of 2015 coincides with the announcement of its People’s Choice Award winner
To celebrate the closing of the 2015 Gold Coast Art Prize exhibition, we are pleased to host finalists Leonie Rhodes and Mike Taylor as our special guests at this event. This is a unique opportunity to hear two diverse local artists discuss their practice.
Mike’s brightly coloured resin sculpture is a standout in the exhibition and Leonie’s bronze sculpture of Aboriginal actor Uncle Jack Charles has also been delighting audiences.
We look forward to another evening of camaraderie with music by the Gold Coast Quartet [Anna Stoddart (flute), Alison Fletcher (violin) Maria Bashford (viola) and David McNeven (cello)]. All are members of the very popular Northern Rivers Symphony Orchestra and also the very new and vibrant Gold Coast Chamber Orchestra.
