Bundaberg Art Society president Marilyn Batty said the annual Black and White exhibition gave members the chance to freely challenge themselves, think outside the box, and see where their imagination and creativity took them.

Local artists have put away their colour palettes and focused on black and white for Bundaberg Art Society's latest exhibition.

Seeing the world through black and white can be more liberating than it sounds, as local artist’s work to emphasise not only texture, but also new meanings without the distraction of colour.

Bundaberg Art Society president Marilyn Batty said the annual Black and White exhibition gave members the chance to freely challenge themselves, think outside the box, and see where their imagination and creativity took them.

“It can be a challenge to use black and white,” Marilyn said.

“We have close to 100 pieces of work from local artists.

“All of the work is black and white; except you know artists being artists are sometimes naughty and they sneak some colour in here or there.”

Marilyn said there was a great range of mediums, including sculpture, painting, photography, and drawing, in the monochrome exhibition from artist aged between 17 right up to 90.

She said the subjects of black and white art took centre stage, and the artist's messages and emotions shonethrough.

“This exhibition is purely for fun, and there are some interesting pieces including some stunning pastel work, as the artists were free to do their own thing,” she said.
