‘Just for the Love of it’ by Monday Artists (Second Gallery)
Inspired by the Charley Pride song ‘Just for the love of it’ the Monday Artists exhibition explores the ‘loves’ of the group members and what brings joy into their life. Through the use of acrylics, oils, watercolours, inks and ceramics a wide variety of styles and subjects are presented challenging the viewer to reflect on what satisfies them and what they do ‘just for the love of it’. In a society where everything has a price, the Monday Artists invite viewers to contemplate a time and place where doing things ‘just for the love of it’ is a priority.
‘Bee-eaters and Bottle Trees: Stories from a country change’ by Maureen Addenbrooke (Third Gallery)
This exhibition illustrates some of the amazing creatures and glorious plants seen and experienced since starting a slow move to the country along Barambah Creek in the South Burnett. The stories are told using intaglio etching, botanical printing, pottery, watercolour, shibori and hand-made books. Maureen studied pottery and drawing in Ballarat and printmaking with Wim de Voss at Studio West End. She is a member of the Queensland Bookbinders Guild. The stick furniture used to display the work has been made by Maureen’s partner, Phil Punter.
