“Mosaic Dawn” Mosaic Exhibition at the Upfront Club, Opening October 16th, 6pm.
Local mosaic artists show their colourful works of art to the public in Maleny.
The Upfront Club in Maleny will host an exhibition of mosaic works from local mosaic artist and teacher, Brett Campbell and his talented students, opening on Thursday the 16th of October, at 6pm. The exhibition will be on display for 5 weeks, until the 20th of November, giving people ample opportunity to visit Maleny and check out the beautiful mosaic designs made by Brett and his students. He aptly named the exhibition ‘Mosaic Dawn’, with respect to his student’s being at the beginning of their journey with mosaics, and is excited about featuringa collection of the mosaics they have created over the last year.
Brett started playing around with mosaics one day 13 years ago, and loved it so much that he quit his job in banking to do it full time. He has proven to be just as successful managing a mosaics business as he was when he managed a bank, and his mosaic works are sought by people across the world for their homes and gardens. Brett enjoys the lifestyle that comes with his life as a mosaic artist, teaching classes, selling his mosaic kits and creating awe inspiring commissioned works, such as his mosaic seat and his most recent underwater scene for a pool. He sees mosaics as a great stress relief, “When I’m in the studio I just put on music, start working, go into a meditative zone and drift away”.
Brett and his students are excited for the opportunity to show off some of their finished works together in this exciting exhibition, showcasing some unique, vibrant designs, using an array of colours, and demonstrating different methods for cutting and laying the tiles. Brett’s students enjoy his unstructured teaching style, which allows them to work at their own pace and seek help when they need it.
“I come back for the people as much as I come to work on my mosaic,” says one of Brett’s students. “Every class is different - you never know what it’s going to be like. Sometimes people are talkative, and sometimes they are quiet, but we keep coming back because it’s a really great vibe, and we end up with a really awesome mosaic.”
Don’t miss out on checking out this unique mosaic exhibition while it is on display at the Upfront Club from the 16th of October – 20th of November, 2014.

'Games & Players'
20th November - 18th December
Marianne Osborne took her sketch-book to the Bridge Club and was awed by the intense concentration of the players. No conversation, no communication. These painting are not portraits, but a depiction of generic card-players, serious and involved. ‘Games & Players’ is Marianne’s fourth exhibition in the Up Front Club.

UpFront Club wins funding for solar panels
Against some stiff competition, the Club has been successful in gaining a $34,621 grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund to install solar panels.
The benefits will be greatly appreciated by our members and community with the potential to reduce our greenhouse emissions by nearly 90 Tonnes per annum.
In addition, the solar panels will enable us to partner with the solar equipment supplier to offer regular education forums delivering education to the greater community about renewable energies.
Our thanks to Andrew Powell, Jenny McKay and Nathan Arrowsmith for being referees for our application.
