#HOTA Collects Showcase: A Souvenir From Paradise

Lower Ground, HOTA Gallery

From the golden nostalgia of Summer holidays, long weekends away, and international dreams of a beach-side paradise – the Gold Coast has long since held a mythical allure on the world stage, and a dedicated passion for those who made the region their home. Our Lower Ground Showcase has been curated from the HOTA Souvenir Collection with pieces from the 1940s to 1990s that speak to the history of tourism on the Gold Coast.

#HOTA Collects Showcase: Michelle Le Plastrier | Dopamine Days

​Level 5, HOTA Gallery

Infused with the spirit of the 1980s, Michelle Le Plastrier’s Dopamine Days is the artist’s own unique vision of the Gold Coast.  

Join us as this local artist takes us to a bright, bold world of contemporary ceramics. Using precariously balanced geometric shapes, Michelle creates everything from a phone-gazing self-portrait to a riotous palm tree; from a perfectly poised kitty-kat to an abstract view of the Gold Coast Skyline from rolling ocean to mountainous hinterland.

These spectacular works embrace the city around us with a new and fresh take on the Gold Coast and the artists that call it home.
