Visitors to the John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery at Dogwood Crossing, Miles, are now able to enjoy the unique artistic talents of local artists Priscilla Mundell and Patricia Hinz, in their latest exhibition Drawn to the Future, which will be on display until Tuesday 27 October.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development and Health Services Councillor Carolyn Tillman said the exhibition highlights the artists’ passion for sharing their love of art with future generations.

“Priscilla and Patricia have lived on properties on the Western Downs for over 40 years and have painted together as part of the Miles Art Group for most of that time, forming a wonderful friendship that has allowed them to grow into their different styles,” she said.

“Drawn to the Future is their third exhibition at Dogwood Crossing, Miles, and we are pleased to be able to showcase how Priscilla’s brightly coloured works complement Patricia’s fondness for using earthy tones in their latest exhibition.

“Their passion for sharing a love of art with the next generation is a strong theme throughout the exhibition. Both artists enjoy spending time with their grandchildren fostering their creativity through investigating and having fun with various forms of art. A selection of artworks created by their grandchildren is currently on display on the Curved Wall.”

Cr Tillman said as part of their Drawn to the Future exhibition Priscilla and Patricia will be hosting a free workshop for Western Downs Grandparents.

“Grandparents of all skill levels, whether experienced artists or looking to gain new skills, are welcome to register for the ‘How to Teach Your Grandchildren to Paint’ workshop. Participants will learn some tips, tricks, and encouragement on fostering the pleasures of art with their grandchildren,” she said.
