Graydon Gallery coaxed ten Sunshine Coast Hinterland artists to leave the comfort of their mountain homes and come connect with Brisbane city as part of Art ConneXions exhibition.

These artists range from painters to sculptors and also include a pastellist, a ceramicist and a photographer, so expect a delightfully diverse range of works as part of this exhibition.

Any time between April 29 – May 10, you can pop into the Graydon Gallery and see the works of these ten artists: Judy Berlak, Bronwyn Brands, Jim Cox, Heather Gall, Margie Lipscombe, Jacky Lowry, Pam Maegdefrau, Elli Schlunke, Tricia Taylor and Carol Weir.

Between them all, they have been hung in the homes of people all around the world and they are all house-hold names in the art world of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. People from both Brisbane and further away have flocked to Maleny, Montville and Mapleton for their Open Studios. Now their new works are in New Farm on your doorstep, providing you with the perfect chance to pick up an amazing piece of art.

With myriad of styles and influences apparent in the various artworks, you can see everything from colourful acrylics, bold sculptures and delicate watercolours to cheeky 3-Ds, oils, pottery and ceramics. Plus there will be prints and arresting photography as well.

Heather Hall, the President of Arts Connect the group from which the artists come, drew attention to how special this exhibition is for those that appreciate art.

“This is a rare opportunity to see such a variety of art media in one exhibition, Their works have become a must-have around the Range and now there is an opportunity for the lovers of art in Brisbane.”

Art ConneXions exhibition launches at 2pm on Sunday May 3 at Graydon Gallery. For more information, visit or check out our event guide listing.
