From coast to country

Gold Coast Women Artists (GCWA) are a group of women from diverse backgrounds, stories and interests who come together to share their love of art and paint. They inspire and motivate each other and soon after creating the association, began exhibiting their work, winning awards, gaining commissions and selling their paintings.

In light of the current crisis being faced by Queensland farmers, GCWA have found a way to simultaneously express their art and extend their compassion, with their current project ‘Coast to Country’.

For this exhibition, the GCWA has joined with the women of the Queensland Country Women’s Association (QCWA) to raise funds for struggling Queensland farmers.

Between 24 November and 2 December the public can view the Art Exhibition by these award-winning Gold Coast artists.

Entry is free, and tickets are available to win original artworks from the best our city has to offer. Artists such as Christine Aiken, Marilyn Bennett, Regina Bruns, Marjorie Fisher, Barbara Graham, Lucinda Leveille, Moonie Patel, Linley Redden and Catherine Wallace all have artworks up for grabs.

Raffle proceeds and 30% of all sales will go to the QCWA Public Rural Crisis Fund where every dollar goes directly to those in need.

‘Coast to Country’ provides visitors with an opportunity to help our farmers and come out with something to show for it; a something that every time you look at it will remind you that you took the time and gave what you could to make a difference.

‘Coast to Country’ runs from 10.00am to 4.00pm at The Old Schoolhouse Gallery, 173 Ashmore Road, Benowa from 24 November, with opening night on 23 November featuring Mr Entertainment Australia, Matt Ross. Visit fb/gcwomenartists, or email gcwomenartists@gmail.com for any enquiries.
