Winter Sun – Art to Warm the Soul

ARTHOUSE ON THE BAY PRESENTS CONTEMPORARY ARTIST – PHILANTHROPIST – ART THERAPY EDUCATOR – ORATOR – MENTOR, DONALD JAMES WATERS OAM
Contemporary artist, Donald James Waters OAM is returning to the Kirra Hill Cultural Centre to exhibit a range of original artworks, limited edition prints and homewares for the third consecutive year. Donald has been gaining momentum teaching Art as Therapy and will be in the gallery space on Saturdays & Sundays from 11am to discuss how everyone can use The Arts for Mindfulness, Self-Expression and to build Self Esteem.

Donald James Waters is an established Australian artist with an illustrious career spanning over three decades. While best described as a contemporary artist, Donald’s artwork transcends many genres to create a truly unique yet ever evolving and eclectic style.  Donald has relaxed the confines of his initial beginnings in botanical art now using stylised strokes, overemphasised characters and bold blocks of colour to shift his primary focus to that of a storyteller rather than a technically correct traditional artist.

Donald’s career has taken his art to every corner of the globe and his distinctive style has made its way into the catalogues of many private and corporate collectors alike, including that of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s art collection.  More recently Donald has concentrated his efforts closer to home completing several commissioned government art projects and participating in community programs within Queensland. In 2016, Donald was awarded with an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) for services to the community and the Arts and has been previously recognised as Gold Coast Citizen of the Year.

Why not make a leisurely day of it?! Enjoy a meal at a local restaurant or cafe, take in the spectacular ocean views and be cultured!
