More than meets the eye at latest art exhibition
THE latest exhibition to open at the Fraser Coast Regional Gallery proves a piece of art can have a different meaning for everyone who sees it.
The 'Perception' exhibition, put together by the Artists Afloat group, is now open and will run until the end of August.
Afloat artist Susie Lewis said Perception was about looking past the surface of the artwork.
"In every piece there's more to the story than what's on the surface," Ms Lewis said.
"Each artist took their own story and challenged the viewer to do more than just look at it, most have a hidden story; something to find and to be revealed- it becomes the viewer's story."
The exhibition involves paintings, sculptures, installations and multi-media presentations.
Ms Lewis said each member of the group chose a passion topic to focus on for their work.
"We all have diverse interests; there's a group of us who chose to focus on femininity and how the feminine spirit has risen in times of adversity and how that evolved and changed," she said.
"There are a couple who have worked around those themes and a couple who have been really interested in how humans are affecting nature."
Perception is free to the public in the gallery on Old Maryborough Rd.
