Charlie Boyle is an established artist who has called Toowoomba home for many years. Originally from Scotland, Charlie came to Toowoomba to take up a lecturing position at the then Darling Downs Institute of Advanced Education. He retired from the University of Southern Queensland as a Senior Lecturer. He now teaches at Toowoomba Art Society for pleasure.
Charlie devotes considerable time to his art practice, which has been continuous and is extensive. He exhibits nationally and internationally. A prolific painter, printmaker and sculptor, Charlie works in that lyrical space between what is real and what is imagined.
This exhibition features mainly large works from Charlie’s ongoing interpretations of landscape. These works capture unique atmospheric effects with a sensitivity to place due in no small part to Charlie’s mastery of colour.
Late last year the Warwick Potters Association welcomed Maleny artist Janna Pameijer to their studio to teach techniques in large clay sculpture making. Janna is well known for her large scale works as well as her European and Moroccan art tours.
The works in display in this exhibition are the outcomes of this workshop.
Lovers of ceramics are in for a special treat with some of Janna’s works also featuring in the exhibition called a Clay Community Collective. Local artists featuring in the exhibition include Penny King, Kerrie Rubie, Raye Batham, Robert Cullen and Sue Keong
