Art. In a brewery. What’s not to like? Burleigh Brewing will host artists across a bunch of mediums in October for the second instalment of Brewing Local Artists, otherwise known as BLA!
Sculpture, graphic design, ceramics, typography and fine art will all be on show when BLA! Rolls into town. And guests will be treated to live art displays as several artists demonstrate how their creations come to life on the evening. Burleigh Brewing CEO Peta Fielding said the live art component allows guests to see how the artists approach their crawt.
“Bringing artwork to life is something that guests just love,” Peta said.
Local photographer Fran Miller expanded on exhibition brief of ‘balance, character & soul saying that she draws inspiration from her local surroundings on a daily basis.
“For me, that’s surf culture which is ingrained within our local community and much of my artwork highlights the beauty of our region and portrays characters with give the Gold Coast it’s personality,” Fran said.
Scott Gillies, speaking from the Brewery said the premise of the event is straight-forward.
“Generate exposure for local artists, engage community within the vibrant art scene which exists on the Gold Coast and allow guests to purchase some unique locally crafted artwork –and given the events in a brewery, enjoy some amazing hand-crafted beer while you’re at it”.
