THREE artists are reconnecting in Peregian after their first exhibition 22 years ago on the Gold Coast.

The trio of Coolum-based Blair McNamara, Ian Tremewen and Lorraine Abernethy have put together their Threeview art exhibition of new and current artworks at the Kart Space Gallery in Peregian, in conjunction with adult public art workshops for January 2013.

The gallery boasts a mix of works, with Lorraine's recent Interior/Exterior works in oils, Ian's Tropicalia watercolours and Blair's Beach Culture acrylics.

Lorraine and Ian are based in northern New South Wales and the three award-winning artists have remained friends for decades.

All three share similar inspirations with colour, creative practice and spirit of place. They have individual works hanging in museums, collections and galleries around Australia and overseas.

Their individual careers also include prominent mural commissions and public art workshops, with Blair most recently completing two murals for Sunshine Coast Council as part of the Coolum and Marcoola streetscapes.

Gallery director David Cassidy says the classes will engage adults to explore techniques, mediums and themes with Ian and Lorraine.

The Threeview exhibition runs until February 4. The gallery can be contacted on 5471 3672.
