For art lovers and those appreciative of a beautiful setting, “Ambience on Tour” offers a very unique Art Tour providing the opportunity to meet talented artists in their own studios and browse charming local art galleries on beautiful Tamborine Mountain. This is an exceptional day out and includes a wine tasting option over leisurely lunch as well as an afternoon Devonshire tea.
Within their serene studio environments, you will be able to view a range of art, informally chat to the artists, find out what inspirations they draw on and potentially see them at work.
The artists’ repertoire includes painting, drawing, ceramic art, sculpture, pottery, printmaking and handmade books. Mixed media painting adopted by some artists demonstrate the use of ink, aluminium, coffee and bitumen. Acrylics and pastels as well as a combination of graphite, charcoal and oil paint mediums have been adopted by other artists. Demonstrations of their work can also be provided by some artists on request.
Many artists have exhibited both nationally and internationally with their artworks included in public and private collections around the world. One of our artist’s has twice been selected for the highly regarded Blake Prize including ‘Directors Cut’. All artists bring their own unique talent and influences to the table, an example being one of our ceramic artists originally trained as a studio potter with the Franciscan Friar Pottery!
Tamborine Mountain is home to not only a number of multi-talented artists but also to some quirky and charming art galleries, each with their own appeal and unique style and ambience.
Owner and Operator of ‘Ambience on Tour’ Helen Claase, has on-boarded eleven local artists to date across a wide range of skills and genres. She says: “I truly feel blessed to have this opportunity to show case the Tamborine Mountain artists’ talent and to have met some very special and talented people along the way. Our regional artists would really appreciate more exposure and need your support!”
