Series-ly Stunning at ca Gallery
The first Art Series presented by ca gallery and Palm Creek Estate was an indulgent and inspiring art immersion, as Deb Caruso discovered.
The Art Series by ca gallery launched with works by Amy Clarke exhibited in Palm Creek Estate’s luxurious, contemporary barn space together with champagne and canapés before an engaging and insightful artist talk and Q&A with Amy and Palm Creek Estate’s Austin Smith.
ca gallery’s Joe McFeeters said he had been sitting on the idea of an intimate art and food experience for some time, so it was a fortuitous meeting when Palm Creek Estate’s Austin and Anna suggested a collaborative event while visiting the gallery last year.
“The aim of The Art Series events is to offer a different way for audiences t
o engage with contemporary art on the Sunshine Coast,” he said. “A shared experience of Australian contemporary culture, connecting guests with local artists, food providores and musicians, over a delicious and relaxed long-lunch.”
Erin Castle from ca gallery said the first of The Art Series was definitely a celebration of exceptional and local contemporary art, food and music.
“The long lunch style event lended beautifully to flowing conversation, and an intimate way to experience Amy’s new body of work,” she said. “Palm Creek Estate is such a serene, natural setting, and perfectly equipped venue. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday.”
Palm Creek Estate’s owners and artlovers, Austin and Anna, said they were excited by the opportunity to host an exhibition within their luxurious, space and to offer a local art and food and beverage experience unlike any other for the Sunshine Coast!
