PAN SITTING IN TREE OF LOVE
clay sculpture, 450 x 270
It was a great opportunity for me to create a piece based on the theme Art with Heart. All my work is from the heart and made with passion.
Acrylic and mixed mediums 610 x 510.
I’m Julie Tomlinson and Art has become a major part of my Life since 2004. I have a passion for creating pieces using many Techniques & Mediums and exploring with the Beauty of Nature. The inspiration for this piece has derived from caring for my Mum in her last few years. She was a Super Hero in disguise. I am a Nurse at Gympie Hospital as part of the Stroke, Rehabilitation and Palliative Care Unit – Our patients and their families demonstrate Power, Grace and Strength regardless of the situation or outcomes. This Lion Painting embodies the Courage and Resilience that we see within our Community on a daily basis. It is my hope that people see the Love and Emotion that I capture in my Art.
220 x 200mm.
by Ellen Appleby
For many years I have been interested in art and the environment. I am passionate about how art creates a sense of place through the relationship between the environment and people and how this changes over time. This vessel is a culmination of years of experimentation with form and decoration, and combines textural marks and expressive painting with slip. I have combined the mark-making with sweeping curves and lines of the coiled vessel to create a feeling of fun and freedom.
LOUD AND PROUD
Porcelain, 250 x 500
“Loud and Proud” is about the dance of life. It was part of a body of work which used anthropomorphism to relate to our native fauna and flora. Making us look at our belief systems and superstitions.

THE HEART STOOL
Recycled Hoop Pine with Gold leaf detail
380 x 300 x 300mm
by Richard Newport
This stool has been designed especially for the Heart of Gold and has been made from recycled Hoop Pine, a local timber, with the Heart of Gold icon finished in gold leaf. While the gold reflects Gympie’s mining industry, the heart reflects the warmth of the town's community. The stool itself will no doubt bring back memories of milking cows for those that lived close to the land.
Old hardwood and leaded glass
1460 x 130 x 30
by Adrienne McVerry
I created this garden art to give people further enjoyment in their garden. The sunlight interacts with the glass and creates an ever changing light display. The installation is simple and changeable . A star picket is hammered into the ground and the art work secured to same. I acquired an old piece of hardwood, cut out a cavity, routed out a rebate. Then made a pattern to fit, cut the glass, leaded it up, puttied the window and set it into the cavity.
Pokerwork 570 x 570

Holding Pattern, was created in 2017 as part of a body of work I was invited to create for the 150th anniversary of Gympie ‘Now and Then’ exhibition at Gympie Regional Gallery.
