This Exhibition will be the result of two years of hard work and many stresses. It is a collabarative piece between Artist Robyn Dower and her sister Kay Gorring who is a writer. They have joined forces to bring to life a delightful story which will capture your heart and fill your senses.
‘A Sense of Wonder’ is the story of Grandma Kate and her relationship with her Granddaughter Annabel. The Story takes you on roller coaster ride of emotion.
The Art Exhibition brings you right into the middle of the story, right into grandmas house where Annabel has returned to house sit. It will provide the clues to piece together the past, and by having the story available to read you shouldn’t miss any of ‘wonder’ it will provide.
The Exhibition will be held at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery in December 2014 and run through until the end of January 2015.
Just returned back from a wonderful experience at an Artist Camp at Bunginderry Station near Quilpie in Queensland. Ten artists and four days of painting in the great outdoors. When I left I was not a landscape painter nor did I paint outside.I just wanted to challenge myself. I came home with a new found appreciation of our differing landscapes and some new friends. Noel Miller was our wonderful tutor and many thanks to artist Annabel Tully, Stephen and the rest of the Tully family for introducing me to their part of the world. A great place in the middle of somewhere. So if you are looking for a place to go just google ‘Bunginderry’
Robyn has teamed up with good friend and fellow artist Dot Rowland to bring you their second joint exhibition. Entitled “Inside Out & Back to Front” , it is little different from their normal work.

The Exhibition will be held at Nimue Art Gallery for the month of August.The gallery is situated on King Street Kingaroy (next to the Carrollee Hotel) An opening will be held on Saturday,the 3rd of August from 10am till 2pm.

There will be an official opening at 11.00am.Gallery Opening hours are Tues 12pm-3.30pm, Wed 10am-1.30pm, Thurs & Fri 10am-3.30pm, Sat & Sun 10am-1.30pm.
Robyn has been working on her new exhibition for The Kingaroy Art Gallery for the month of June, entitled ‘My Country Side’. This body of work has been inspired by her surrounds and the South Burnett area. She lives on a farm which is reflected in her work. There will also be a variety of sculptures as well. This exhibition will run from June 2nd until the 30th with opening night being on Friday the 14th at 6.00pm.
As part of the inaugural “Tractor Tattoo” in the South Burnett, and with RADF funding, Robyn constructed an interactive tractor jigsaw in the Wondai gallery. This received a lot of attention from visitors, young and old alike.
2012 has been a very busy year for Robyn as she prepared for her second solo exhibition at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery in September.
Entitled “Distracted”, the exhibition was inspired by a comment made in the past by one of Robyn’s teachers: “Robyn is a conscientious girl but can be easily distracted“. That ‘distraction’ resulted in an amazing array of paintings and sculptures, as she moved between 2D and 3D,traditional and contemporary, and changes in mediums.
“Throw in a few disasters with execution of these ideas and I was a little stressed. In the end, I was very proud of the exhibition, with sales beyond my expectations, and everything coming together well.”
