Not As Green

Exhibition Date: August 6, 2021 to September 7, 2021

Location: Mission Arts, MARCS Park, Mission Beach

"NOT AS GREEN", an amazing exhibition featuring six North Queensland artists opens at Mission Beach Community Arts Centre on Friday, 6 August 2021 at 6:00pm.

Formed in 2010, this group known as the Green Painters began fresh, raw, and untrained (i.e., ‘green’).  Their first exhibition in 2013, titled “GREEN” was hugely successful with most paintings selling within 24hrs. Their second exhibition in 2016, “GREEN AS”, was equally successful drawing large numbers on Opening Night and many sales throughout the exhibition period.  In 2019 the group returned with their third exhibition, “GREENISH”, demonstrating their ongoing progression.

In 2021 they are back again with a fresh, exciting exhibition titled “NOT AS GREEN”. The artists share many common interests despite quite different backgrounds and training – each with their own unique expression, approach and art practice reflected in divergent subject choices. Using different mediums such as oil and acrylic, they explore various themes including landscape, figurative, and portraiture.

“We’ve been painting over the past 18 months for this exhibition.” Pete Faulkner said.  “We all have the passion to paint and express ourselves individually. The “NOT AS GREEN” artists have their own distinct styles and use different materials, colours, and equipment to demonstrate this. Our diversity and evolving interests and approaches help keep us together and maintain us as a painting group.”

The “NOT AS GREEN” exhibition features work by Shara Cassidy, Pete Faulkner, Carol Giuliany, Lynda Hannah-Williams, Bruce Parry, and Sue Pullman.
