Renew: Real Illusions Exhibition

From 18th May till 7th July at the Hervey Bay regional Gallery xxpect to see the most original, innovative and quirky objects ever, in this contemporary and perhaps controversial exhibition of artworks created using non-mainstream materials.

Artists from across the Wide Bay region and Queensland, as well as from interstate, have been selected to present their most unique and skillfully created artworks expressing a theme of their choice. 
The only catch is that they must use predominantly recycled objects or ‘alternative’ materials as their media of choice. 

This particularly entertaining showcase verges on the strange, if not absurd, in exploring a range of ideas and approaches to creating art.
