'What’s up, Sunshine?’ tells the story of the past 50 years of Noosa’s history and is part of activities planned to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the naming of the Sunshine Coast.
The exhibition focuses on the people and events that have shaped the region over the past 50 years, looking at holidays, tourism, surfing, environment, festivals, planning and development.
August 2017 marks 50 years since the adoption of the name ‘Sunshine Coast’ to describe the region from Caloundra to Noosa. Noosa Council is partnering with Sunshine Coast Council to deliver a program of activities across the region during 2017. The exhibition is supported by Noosa Council’s Heritage Levy.
Also at the Gallery is Fabula Mundi, Rosalind Woodward’s Dupion silk works that present like cultural garments. Fifteen years in the making,
their restricted palette and minimal design hint at national costume or period pieces. Fabula Mundi or "Story of the World" is a journey
into what separates and connects the conscious and unconscious mind. Each garment is a study in patience, restraint and dedication, some taking
six months to complete.
