Oscar prepares for the Art Festival when "Raw Art" visits RBSS

Oscar prepares for the Art Festival when “Raw Art” visits RBSS

Rainbow Beach’s “Brushes by the Sea” Annual Art Festival will again be held at the Rainbow Beach Sports Recreation and Memorial Club on the weekend January 24 to 26, 2015.

The local artists from around the Cooloola Coast area of Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Cooloola Cove are eligible to enter the Art competition and what an amazing group of talented people there are.

The categories cover a range of subjects: Acrylic, Oils, Watercolour, Photography, Quilting, Craft, Drawing, Young Artist. The People’s Choice always draws a lot of interest as it gives everyone a chance to vote for their favourite piece of art.

So to all the artistic people out there get your camera’s clicking, machines threaded , paint brushes working and creative ideas going – we look forward to seeing your entries.

Entries MUST BE SUBMITTED BY JANUARY 9, 2015 and are only $5 each. This enables us to arrange the necessary stands etc that will be required – you don’t have to deliver your work until January 19 and 20. Please check your entry forms for full details.

Each year we select a different local community group to be the recipient of the monies raised by the Festival. “Brushes by the Sea” 2015 will be supporting the Rainbow Beach State School Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation Programme to purchase supplies for the garden and cooking classes for the children.

All of this would not be possible without our wonderful local business who dig deep and support this event:

This year we are very fortunate to have art judge Tricia Bradford who has been involved with the art community in Noosa for many years, either teaching or organising galleries to enable the local artist to showcase their work.

For her dedication to the community Tricia was awarded 2014 Noosa Local Legend. Tricia has kindly offered to provide a drawing exhibition as an extra fundraiser, with only a gold coin to watch.
