Artists celebrate Australia’s landscape from Centre to Sea

Artists Yanni van Zijl and Trevor Purvis have combined their unique talents to exhibit a body of art work derived from their shared passion for the extremes of this vast country with the Centre to Sea exhibition these Easter holidays.

From the soft, gentle beauty of the seashore, through verdant forests to the harsh, unforgiving plains and deserts this exhibition takes you on an immersive art adventure through the Australian landscape.

The free exhibit will be on display at the Maroochy Regional Bushland Botanic Gardens Arts and Ecology Centre from April 5-15 from 10am-2pm, with a formal launch on Saturday April 7 from 2-4pm.

Children on the Sunshine Coast can also hear from these artists and be inspired as they share their travels and creative observations, as well as   have the opportunity to play with colour and texture, in both 2D and 3D, contributing to daily artworks

The children’s Art Adventure exploring the Centre to Sea exhibition will be held daily from   April 6-8 and again on   April 12-14 from 10am- 2pm. The adventure is free of charge and no registrations are required.

Families looking to explore the arts and ecology of the gardens can also discover art installations within the native bushland, or visit the interactive Whipbird Walk, nature-based playground.
