Hall is serving a slice of art

JAMES Hall opened his latest art exhibition, Slice of Blue, at the Childers Regional Art Gallery on the weekend.

The Hervey Bay artist said his idea for the collection was to “showcase his passion for painting”.

“I am always being inspired by Australian landscapes, the ever-changing skies and the wide-open vistas of our beaches and forests,” he said.

Mr Hall calls his recent collection “a visual narrative of time and light”.

The Childers Art Gallery glowed with all the hues of blue of the Burrum River and Fraser Island coastal scenery as well as the cool greens of inland Fraser Island and the clear waters of Eli Creek.

Images of old wooden fishing boats and foraging seabirds added to the feelings of holiday and relaxation evoked by the paintings.

Mr Hall said he had been painting for the past 20 years, but it was only in the past five years he decided to concentrate more on his art and get serious about it.

The exhibition runs until January 31.
