Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Venture to Hydeaway Bay this July and experience the amazing art created by amateur and professional artists, local to Hydeaway Bay, Dingo Beach, and Cape Gloucester.
Taking place only every two years, the Gloucester Hidden Talent Art Expo is a perfect show for a quiet weekend.
While showcasing the beautiful art of locals, including pottery, textile pieces, quilting, photography, woodworking, and jewellery making, there will also be craft demonstrations and workshops, shopping alley, and kids craft space.
Children can be a part of the Rock Art Creations workshops hosted by Jenny Hock, to learn the hidden talent of rock painting and art.
Be sure to bring a shopping bag because the shopping alley will entice all with a large variety of handmade goods and items available for purchase.
Only open to artists who either live or participate regularly in the Gloucester artist movement, this expo is sure to showcase many projects and design never seen to the public before, that are sure to surprise many.
However, you might recognise a few exhibitions from artists whose pieces are regularly displayed and exhibited in galleries and art spaces around Australia.
Come along in July and be immersed in the hidden talent that is in our region.
