MORANBAH ALL-STAR DISPLAYS DEBUT EXHIBITION
Moranbah identity and 4RFM radio champion Alaina Earl is bringing her artistic talent to the Coalface Art Gallery in her debut exhibition Deeper Water this September. As a visual artist, the exhibition features artworks primarily with ocean-based themes, something from which Alaina draws inspiration.
Isaac Regional Council Acting Mayor Kelly Vea Vea said Alaina has been sharing her artistic skills with Moranbah residents for years.
“Dozens of people have had the honour of attending one of Alaina’s workshops over the years, and now we have the pleasure of showcasing some of her work and some creations from Art Party participants,” Cr Vea Vea said.
Alaina said art and the ocean went hand-in-hand.
“Art has always been a way for me to switch off and the ocean has always been a very calming environment for me. Being on it, in it, or looking at it brings such a wonderful sense of calm.
“I hope that this exhibition can project that. I am also incredibly proud to have some of my Art Party students’ work hanging on the walls alongside mine.”
Members of the public are invited to attend the official launch of the exhibition on Wednesday, 1 September to meet Alaina Earl and view the artworks. The launch will begin at 6pm with complimentary light refreshments and a cash bar.
