Wildflowers of the Granite Belt: Out of Oblivion
This exhibition presents biochrome works created over several years on a forested private property at Wilsons Downfall near Stanthorpe. The featured blossoms, once almost invisible in the landscape, thereafter transpired grander and brighter as art installations in situ during public events at the award-winning Piano Mill, led by the Harrigans Lane Collective. Out of their bush stage these wildflowers emerge in the gallery space in their bold and rich presence.

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.
