‘Going my own way’ by Jane Walduck (First Gallery)
Although Jane is a member of a quite prolific fibre art group, she has a rebellious streak which has lead her off track to her own stories and themes. This exhibition has its genesis on a day of “why don’t I have a try at combining all my usual art activities?”. This thought and two years of work produced the rambling collection of pieces in this display. Jane has been inspired from several sources including a French artist working in wool and found objects, an author who introduced her to machined sashiko quilting and Kumiko Sudo who great applique designs have inspired her for a number of years. Combined with these obvious fibre techniques, Jane has added both acrylic and watercolour paints to add an extra dimension. Also added are old and new bits and pieces.
‘From the Outback to the Ocean’ by Muriel Patterson (Main Gallery)
An eclectic mix of subjects and mediums. Always pushing the boundaries and trying new mediums Muriel has, over the years, exhibited in oils, watercolour, bark, silk but has settled on acrylic for the convenience of incorporating new mediums. A love of art started at an early age but life got in the way for many years, now well into her eighties, Muriel says, “sitting quietly in the bush, brush in hand, a comfy chair and her canvas set at a low angle is pretty much as close to heaven as she can get”.
‘The Beauty of Creation’ by Kylie Facey (Third Gallery)
Kylie is a Brisbane based photographer with a keen interest in wildlife and nature photography who has been active since June 2020. It is a celebration of 12 moments she has had the joy to witness and photograph that really makes her appreciate the gift of nature.
