See the contrasts of Australia

HUNDREDS of masterpieces will grace the Elanora Uniting Church art exhibition next Friday when the contrasts of Australia are put to canvas.

"Over the past decade or so, the Elanora Uniting Church Art Show has grown to become a well-recognised and well-respected feature of the art scene on the southern Gold Coast," organiser Dianne Malimonenko said.

"This year's show promises to delight visitors who will come from near and far to look at the wide variety of entries in eight sections."

From a children's section to open sections that include watercolours, oils or acrylics, drawing, pastel, and miniatures the feature theme this year is Our Country of Contrasts.

"The theme is open to wide interpretation in any medium," Ms Malimonenko said.

There are in excess of 400 entries, with many works for sale.

The show will begin on Friday night (May 4) with an "Arty Party" and concludes on Monday afternoon (May 7).

It is open for all three days of the long weekend from 10:30am - 4pm daily.

Admission is free all weekend.

Various artists will be demonstrating their skills each day and light refreshments will be on sale.

The venue is wheelchair friendly with a large car park.

The grounds can be entered from either Pines Lane or Applecross Way, Elanora or Exit 92 (Palm Beach Ave) from the M1.
