Jive Art is located on Hastings Street in the heart of Noosa Heads. Jive exhibits a tightly edited collection of contemporary paintings, Aboriginal art, glass sculpture and unique jewellery (for our online jewellery store, see www.jivedesign.com.au). While nothing can compare to viewing the art in person, our online gallery endeavors to share with you the sense of pleasure and excitement that each of these art works invoke.
Jive features the very best in contemporary art across a range of styles. Complex and dramatic abstracts by one of Queensland's leading artist -- Michael Whitehead; powerfully detailed, strikingly evocative works by Sharon Stone; the contemporary musings of Paul Colbey; the sensual glass art of Lucas Salton; innovative works on aluminium by David Ardley and the timeless, organic glass sculptures of reknown Australian artist Chris Pantano. We also feature Aboriginal art from independant, urban artists such as Kurun Warun, as well as the emerging and established artists of Australia's most important Aboriginal Art regions -- Kathleen Petyarre, Gloria Petyarre, Jeannie Petyarre, Kudditji Kngwarreye, Ronnie Tjampitjinpa, Joy Kngwarreye Jones, Betty Mpetyane, Evelyn Pultara, Anna Pitjara, Candy Nakamarra, Lorna Brown Napananka, Christoper Poulson, Andy Gibbs, Susan Pitjara Hunter and many others.
Jive is a lively space where the staff are warm, welcoming and knowledgeable and the atmosphere as laid back as you’d expect of a gallery on one of Australia's most beautiful beaches. Whether you are a devoted collector or a first-time buyer, the bold and vibrant contemporary art works on display at Jive will lift your spirits. And if you can't visit us in person, we hope you find enjoyment, inspiration and pleasure in the talent of the artists we proudly represent in the online version of our gallery.
