Living Change at CHARTS
THE touring exhibition of the prestigious 2013 Queensland Regional Art Awards, Living Change, has landed at the Childers Arts Space.
To celebrate the opening, CHARTS will host a Coffee and Conversation event today, November 13, from 10–11am.
Everyone is welcome to come and have a chat with two of the artists, Christine Turner and Robyn Gergos, and entry is free.
Curated by Tim Morrell (art writer, curator and former curator of Australian Contemporary Art, QAG), this impressive exhibition features the diverse artwork of 32 of the finest emerging and established artists working in regional and remote Queensland.
Artists were invited to respond to the theme of Living Change and explore how it related to the lives, people and places of regional and remote Queensland communities.
The exhibition highlights the amazing and talented artists who work across regional communities in Queensland and the artworks will definitely resonate with our community.
Interested in recycling? CHARTS is holding two school holiday workshops using recycled items on Sunday, December 7.
The workshops will show students how to make paper bowls, paper plates and paper wall hangings using the pressed pulped technique.
Workshop tutor Mary Elizabeth Barron works largely with plant fibre or recycled materials using papermaking and basketry techniques.
During the Paper Bowl and Plate workshops, children will make original decorative plates from recycled paper using the pressed pulp technique.
Paper Wall Hanging participants will create original wall hangings or artworks suitable for framing from recycled paper pulp, other recycled materials and dried plant material.
For bookings and further information, phone the gallery on 4130 4876 or email email@example.com.
The Childers Arts Council Visual Arts Group is winding down from a very successful and productive year.
Many wonderful artworks were produced at the Creation Station ( 10 Hebbards Rd, Apple Tree Creek) in the past year.
To celebrate another successful year, the group is holding a Christmas function at the Creation Station on Thursday, December 4.
It will be an informal “bring a plate” and “secret Santa” get-together where members of the group can share stories and generally enjoy each other’s company.
Anyone interested in joining in the camaraderie of this very active group is welcome to attend on the day.
The art group will reconvene with renewed energy on Thursday, February 5.
Their first challenge will be a shared exhibition with members of the Bundaberg and Gin Gin art groups. The title is Black and White and the exhibition will be displayed at CHARTS in March.
The group wishes to thank Alice and Alec McLaughlin for repeatedly giving their time and home to foster the growth of creative expression in the Childers area.
MEET THE ARTIST: Robyn Gergos, whose work Face of a Soldier, is shown above, will be at this morning’s Coffee and Conversation event at Childers Art Space.
