Yeppoon locals and visitors have the rare opportunity to see local award-winning artist Jet James painting live this weekend at Keppel Bay Sailing Club.

Jet James is an Yeppoon-based Australian artist recognised for his unique and highly sensitive artworks. He has been awarded many prizes across the country with his most recent win being in the Oak Hill Annual Printmaking award in Melbourne.

Keppel Bay Sailing Club manager Julie Strudwick said the Capricorn Coast has many gifted artists and it’s a privilege to provide a platform for the community to see them performing live.

“Jet’s work is now on the international stage which is testament to how talented he is as an artist,” Ms Strudwick said.

“Seeing him in action, witnessing the talent and creativity at work as he paints live is a special experience.”

See Jet James painting on Saturday at the Clubhouse from 6pm. Entry is free and includes live music by Aaron Hamilton and Kassy Evans.

Jet’s work will be on display at the Clubhouse throughout the weekend.
