Celebrating 25 years of Personalised Creative Art Classes
In Memory of our lovely friend Tom Swan, the Canungra Downs developer and two great locals.
The Art Hut is a replica of the home of Canungra Artist Edwin Bode, presented to the town of Canungra by Tom Swan
Artist (Photographer), (Painter)
Edwin Bode was a painter and photographer who traveled throughout Queensland painting watercolours of homesteads in exchange for board and lodging. He was a longtime resident of Canungra, where he died in 1926.
Burial place : Wonglepong Cemetery, Canungra, Qld.with a sandstone tombstone, which featured a palette and brushes and was inscribed 'Erected by the many friends and admirers of our natural artist, E. Bode, in memory of his glorious work'.
Note* The Art Hut, or former shed used to be located on the new fence line of Giselle and Dieter' block and Tom's newly developed Canungra Downs. It is possible that the artist Bode has done one of his paintings from that spot.
