Postcards from the Edge

11 Jun to 30 Oct 2022

Children's Gallery

The paintings of Martin Edge are brought to life in this family-friendly travel adventure in HOTA’s dedicated Children Gallery.  

Sunny and happy holiday dreams come true in Postcards from the Edge. There’s no need to travel any further than HOTA’s Children's Gallery where artist Martin Edge’s colourful paintings are brought to life in an inclusive space for fun and adventure.  

Holiday vibes abound in Martin’s beach scenes, where you can climb a giant sandcastle, visit his souvenir shop and create your own holiday mementos to take home. HOTA invites the whole family to visit, stay and play while you dream of holiday adventures - past and future. Let's create some colourful and creative holiday memories together.  

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts with Martin Edge  

Exhibition Major Partner Robina Town Centre

HOTA has received grant funding from the Australian Government, under the Recovery for Regional Tourism program administered by Austrade to support this program.

#A message from Martin

Hi, I’m Martin. I love to travel and I think of every day as a new adventure. I make paintings about the places I have visited. Or the places I dream about visiting.

My artworks are like a ‘memory jog’ of each adventure, but I also like to use my own imagination and creativity to paint the scene how I see or remember it.

I love my trips to the Gold Coast. I love to look at its famous skyscraper skyline, beaches, canals, the backdrop of the mountains – and now HOTA!

What do you love about the Gold Coast?

Let’s create some holiday memories here today. You don’t have to leave home to travel. You can use your imagination or a ‘memory jog’, like I do.
