If you live in the area, you might want to mosey along to the Community Hall, 5 Mildura Drive in Helensvale.
The skies are grey and the showers insistent on a dull Gold Coast today, but this exhibition - essentially a Holman retrospective - sparkles with vibrant art.
You can meet the artist himself and view more than 40 sculptures and paintings – including some so venerable that he refuses to part with them.
The exhibition starts this morning and is open today and tomorrow from 9am-5pm.
Meanwhile we feature here a couple of the artworks on display.
The stylised crucifixion of a soldier is a self portrait of Hal Holman and echoes his experiences as a commando in PNG during World War II.
Hal, now nearly 90, is as prolific and lively as ever, and he and his works of art are adornments to the Gold Coast.
