For the unique opportunity to experience two different mediums by two different artists, be sure to head along to the DUALIS exhibition at Sunshine Coast Council’s Maroochy Regional Botanic Garden, 32 Palm Creek Road, Tanawha from 30 March to 13 April.

The upcoming exhibition of ‘DUALIS - Two Artists - Two Mediums’ by Pam Miller and Cheryl Joy, is a culmination of works produced in Cheryl’s print studio at Doonan. The ongoing experimental processes of linoleum cuts were the beginnings for this exhibition.

Cheryl was influenced by a questionnaire many employers use to test the personalities of interviewees. The questionnaire is designed to help you to get a fun, high-level look at your preferred personality type by assigning you a bird that most closely matches your answers to the test questions; this led to the series of bird images. Her paintings are an extension of this subject matter – she decided to incorporate birds from the local area and layered symbols to signify our leisurely lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast.

Pam’s love of medieval history was the inspiration for her ‘Black Death’ series of linoleum cut prints. Her paintings follow a completely different tangent – she decided to branch out into large loose abstract work using a minimal palette and bold lines.

The exhibition will be open from 10am to 4pm Monday to Sunday, from 30 March to 13 April. Entry is free.
