Davida Allen talks about her work and latest exhibition. If you’re artist, art lover, or student 13+ this FREE event is for you!

Davida Allen will be at Artspace Mackay for the launch of her latest exhibition Colourful Expressions, on show in the main gallery at Artspace Mackay. Allen’s colourful, expressionist paintings have documented her everyday experiences, for over 40 years. In this major exhibition of work from northern regional gallery collections and the artists’ archive, her joyful interrogation of daily life as artist, mother and grandmother is seen. Drawing on the artist’s connection to South East and Central Queensland, Allen’s paintings are honest expressions of everyday life.
