DISSIMILARITY, an exhibition by Paul Ambrose and Ursula Stiebritz, opens this Friday evening at The Old Fire Station Gallery in Redcliffe.

The show is an eclectic collection by two award winning artists from different backgrounds and sources of inspiration.

Although having no formal art training, Paul Ambrose plunged enthusiastically into the art world immediately upon retirement some 20 years ago.

His favourite subject has been still life, or a landscape treated as a still life. He started visiting a friend's sheep and cattle property in NSW and became intrigued by the range of scenery and unusual aspects of the landscape there - creeks, trees, mountains, old buildings, old vehicles and machinery and some of the usual aspects of farm life.

Ursula Stiebritz has been involved with art since early childhood. Her grandfather, Professor Albert Finck, a well known artist in Germany and art lecturer, designer of countless stained glass church windows and landscape painter, played a very big role in her interest in art.

Ms Stiebritz's art reflects her love of light, shade, form and colour. She sees interesting details in nature and all things in the environment. She chooses the medium in accordance with the subject she is painting.

"Painting is my life and my passion, I don't exist without it,” Ms Stiebritz said.

The exhibition runs from Wednesday, July 12 to Sunday, August 6 at The Old Fire Station Gallery, located at 395 Oxley Avenue, Redcliffe.

Exhibition opening night is this Friday, July 14 at 5pm.
