Apr 2021 Monthly Members Exhibition – Figurative & Portraiture (Past)

The April 2021 monthly themed exhibition is Figurative & Portraiture. Depicting an image of the human form in a figure study or traditional portrait is an age old tradition, which is still just as popular and challenging today.

Please come and view the exhibition at Hervey Bay Art Society’s “Gallery 5” Art Gallery, at 5 Sandy St Urangan. Gallery 5 is open daily and entry is free.

The exhibition runs from Apr 9, 2021 through May 6, 2021.

Running concurrently with this exhibition is the Members General Exhibition and the Members 3D General Exhibition. All these exhibitions feature well priced pieces that would make great acquisitions or gifts.

The next monthly members competition is Still Life which is held from May 7, 2021.
