Art on Cairncross is hosting an exhibition of paintings by Irish born Jim Kinch at the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce in Bulcock Street, Caloundra.
Jim loved painting people at play whether it be sport or leisure and he always captured movement in his paintings.
Sadly Jim died in late 2016 but I'm sure he would be happy with this particular exhibition of his work.
If you are a member of the Caloundra Chamber of Commerce you can visit any time during office hours. For all others we can organise a viewing for you.
Please contact Art on Cairncross on 07-54296404 for more information.
We are hoping to take a break from mid-February (following a few renovations to the gallery), but will obviously keep you informed nearer that time.
We have plenty to look forward to in 2017...major exhibitions by Rowley Drysdale; Rex Backhaus-Smith & Judith Laws; Ann O'Connor & Gerry O'Connor. We shall have features of other artists throughout the year and there is always something original and new to enjoy.
We have had a very successful opening weekend for our 'Precious Little' exhibition.
It was great to see people braving the heatwave to come into the comfort of the air conditioned gallery.
So why not give away the seething masses at the shopping centre and indulge in something unique for a loved one....or even yourself.
We are continuing the 'bubbles & wrapping' right up until December 24th.
Open - Tuesday to Sunday - 10.00am to 5.00pm
It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jim Kinch on October 4th.
Jim was a highly talented impressionist painter with a great sense of humour.
We were fortunate to know him and regard him as a good friend.
Our condolences are with Marie and the entire Kinch family.
Rest in Peace Jim.

Art on Cairncross, Maleny is proud to host this feature of watercolours during April...
by Tony Lewis and Dawn Lewis
April 5 - 30, 2016
Tony Lewis has been a professional artist for over 40 years. His remarkable control of watercolour allows him to portray light and mood brilliantly. The serenity of a rural scene or the howling winds of a blustery seascape are all
expertly conveyed and never over-worked. This skill has gained him a worthy reputation.
Dawn Lewis brings a softness to her paintings, but these are strong in result. Many of her artworks are glimpses of a larger scene, telling a story through a vignette. Recent pieces have a wonderful loose approach and still an intrigue.
Celebrating this 100th anniversary of Anzac Day.
Art on Cairncross has a feature of paintings by Tom McAulay in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the first Anzac Day. This suite of work includes WWI & II, Vietnam and old mates reminiscing.
April 19 to 30, 2016
Cynthia House has been selected to exhibit in the prestigious international "Wildlife Artist of the Year".
The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation holds this exhibition in London in June 2016.
Congratulations and good luck Cynthia
“Translucence” showcases the work of five watercolourists who have the talent to create magnificent paintings using this notoriously challenging medium. Transparent watercolour can be soft and subtle, but equally strong in its suggestion, which allows the artist great scope when it is used skillfully. Each painter has their own approach and therefore results. James Fearnley’s intriguing layers of wash; Tony Lewis’ mastery of light; John McVeigh-Brown’s rhythmical landscapes; James McKay’s implied details and Dawn Lewis’ softly mesmerizing scenes. These are artists who respect the possibilities of watercolour and know how to use it to its fullest potential.
Translucence continues until Sunday November 29th.
The gallery is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10.00am to 5.00pm.
This wonderful exhibition showcases artworks by Ann & Gerry O'Connor, a creative couple who work with clay in different ways. Ann's sculpture is inspired by the quirky images drawn by scribes in the margins of medieval manuscripts, while Gerry works in the ancient Asian Raku tradition.
October 3 to 25, Gallery open 10 - 5 Tuesday to Sunday
