    A Touch of Colour

    The exhibition “A Touch of Colour” takes a ‘low-key’ approach to art through a series of 2D and other works showcasing a reductive colour palette.

    Subject matter ranges from luscious landscapes to beguiling still life subjects, bringing together the contemporary artwork of Rockhampton based group, CQ Contemporary Artists.
