NOT AS GREEN Exhibition
“NOT AS GREEN”, an amazing exhibition featuring six North Queensland artists opens at Mission Beach Community Arts Centre on Friday, August 6 at 6:00pm.
Formed in 2010, this group known as the Green Painters began fresh, raw, and untrained (i.e., ‘green’). Their first exhibition in 2013, titled “GREEN” was hugely successful with most paintings selling within 24hrs.
Their second exhibition in 2016, “GREEN AS”, was equally successful drawing large numbers on opening night and many sales throughout the exhibition period. In 2019 the group returned with their third exhibition, “GREENISH”, demonstrating their ongoing progression.
In 2021 they are back again with a fresh, exciting exhibition titled “NOT AS GREEN”. The artists share many common interests despite quite different backgrounds and training – each with their own unique expression, approach and art practice reflected in divergent subject choices. Using different mediums such as oil and acrylic, they explore various themes including landscape, figurative, and portraiture.
Bruce Parry is a contemporary Mission Beach Green painter who has exhibited widely within the region. “I am constantly inspired by the amazing landscapes and forest around us in Mission Beach and this is where I get a lot of my inspiration,” Bruce stated.
The GREEN artists have been painting over the past 18 months for this exhibition and each have a passion to paint and express themselves individually. They have their own distinct styles and use different materials, colours, and equipment to demonstrate this. The “NOT AS GREEN” exhibition features work by Shara Cassidy, Pete Faulkner, Carol Giuliany, Lynda Hannah-Williams, Bruce Parry, and Sue Pullman.
