Artist to unleash a stream of colour across CQ

A WELL-KNOWN Central Queensland arts and cultural champion is set to bring a kaleidoscope of colours to the Isaac region’s premier art space next month.

Moranbah’s Coalface Art Gallery will showcase Lynnie Busk’s Going with the Flow: Acrylic Flow Art exhibition with the official opening this Friday and free workshops in August.

Known for her passion for art, family and volunteering, the proud 67-year-old artist said she was ready to exhibit her artworks to the public for the first time.

Ms Busk, who as a newlywed with her husband Noel settled in Moranbah in 1972, said she found her passion for art in late 2017 and never looked back.

“I am so hooked on acrylic flow painting as it marries together my passion for colour and my love of creativity,” she said.

“I regularly run classes and have shared my skills with around 200 locals so far.”

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said shining a light on a local person’s achievements wasthe heart and soul of Coalface Art Gallery.
