A new season brings exciting new exhibitions and the Sunshine Coast’s galleries, studios and arts centres have something for everyone!



Sandra Selig: exploring giant molecules

Sandra Selig works at the intersection of visual art and experimental music, using humble materials such as thread, paper, light and sound to articulate intangible notions of form, space and time. Her new exhibition presents six projects that have evolved organically over time and in response to the spaces Selig works and exhibits in.


Arryn Snowball: Slack Water

Slack Water is a collaboration about the Pacific Ocean between artist, Arryn Snowball and poet, Nathan Shepherdson. The exhibition brings together Snowball’s new and recent paintings, gouache studies, and experimental performance-based drawings inspired
by Shepherdson’s collection of 77 poems as well as a growing understanding of human impacts on climate and ecosystems.

Local Artists – Local Content Art Prize 2022 Exhibition

This exhibition celebrates the diversity of visual arts across the Sunshine Coast with forty finalist artworks. An initiative of Friends of the Regional Gallery, Caloundra, the prize invites works across a range of genres from regional artists depicting local themes.


Feeling of the Place: from here to there and back again

A deep insight into the extraordinary making of one of the Sunshine Coast’s favourite artistic travellers, Rex Backhaus-Smith. With works drawn from private and public collections, this exhibition examines the depth and breadth of Rex’s art and follows his expeditions from his early landscapes of outback towns to vivid works from recent trips to the top end to his own backyard. Attend the launch on Thursday 12 May, 6pm-8pm.

One World (not to scale) 

Wilhelmus Breikers presents a collection of drawings and paintings that are declarative, rhetorical and loud, answering the question, “is the world still a better place?” This exhibition expresses the artist’s opinions on world issues as well as his enjoyment in the use of materials and processes.



This collection of surrealist figurative sculpture, organic ceramic vessels and found object installations, ignites a personal and authentic response to the collective themes of awakening from the unconscious human experience. Ceramicist Fiona Cuthbert O’Meara embodies a deep personal narrative around issues of life and death, loss, reconnection, rebirth and personal identity.

Make Your Own Kiln-Fired Enamel Jewellery with Teresa Mundt

Vitreous enamelling is the art of fusing powdered glass to metals at very high temperatures to create bright and beautiful earrings and pendants. In this 4-hour, hands-on workshop, you will learn every step in the enamelling process, from cutting copper pieces, to sifting, stencilling, and firing your own unique designs.
