Short details about the exhibitions:
Wildflowers of the Granite Belt: Out of Oblivion
This exhibition presents works created over several years on a forested private property at Wilson's Downfall near Stanthorpe. The featured blossoms, flickering in the sunlight and scattered across this beautiful and inspirational landscape, thereafter transpired as art installations in situ. Presented annually in the bush during the Harrigans Lane Collective’s public events at the award-winning Piano Mill, now these wildflowers emerge in the gallery space in their bold and rich presence.
This project includes biochrome images, video work, and lumen prints; also features soundscapes by Clocked Out Duo and poetry by Vicki Kelleher; a visual guide of bush flowers and an educational art activity for adults and children created in collaboration with HAPY.CA
Enjoy this FREE Exhibition Activity Guide e-book, which includes photographs and a list of flowers you can find within the artworks.
Download FREE Activity Cards with wildflowers for adults and children from HAPY.CA website. Have FUN!
Exhibition catalogue with an essay Art, Science and Nature’s Day-to-Day Miracles by Carol Schwarzman will be available at the Gallery, or please email for a free pdf file.
Jo Bone and Aaron Micallef
Translations in Symmetry and Surface
Glass artists Jo Bone and Aaron Micallef have a shared passion for the medium of glass, and complementary aesthetic approaches revolving around pattern, symmetry and intricacy in the natural world. Their glass artwork is crafted using traditional hot-glass (blowing) and cold-working techniques (cutting, engraving, etching) to create form and surface. Jo’s fascination for pattern and intricacy in natural objects, particularly in the marine environment, finds expression through her glass practice. Aaron complements his glass practice with photography, reinterpreting glass through the camera lens and capturing the subtleties of the diffusion, diffraction, reflection and refraction of light through blown and cut glass.
