Visit stu­dio on ex­hi­bi­tion tour

Isis Town and Country - - News -

CHILDERS Arts Space has a new ex­hi­bi­tion, Earth Coats, by Howard-based artist Jo Wil­liams.

The ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the lay­ers of dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ences that ev­ery­one gath­ers on their jour­ney through life through the dif­fer­ent coats we all wear.

Orig­i­nally in­spired by a fairy­tale, Wil­liams’ imag­i­na­tion and cre­ativ­ity shine through in her cre­ations, which are based on the iconic shape of the ki­mono.

Each coat in the ex­hi­bi­tion tells var­i­ous sto­ries of life’s wounds, ex­pe­ri­ences and the way that coats can some­times weigh us down as well as pro­tect us. The ex­hi­bi­tion opened on Tues­day.

You can join in to­mor­row at 5.30pm at the gallery to cel­e­brate the open­ing with Ms Wil­liams.

This is a free event with free drinks and re­fresh­ments pro­vided.

You can also join Re­becca Ma­cLean, Bund­aberg Re­gional Gal­leries pub­lic pro­grams of­fi­cer, on a Earth Coats bus trip and stu­dio tour on Thurs­day, Fe­bru­ary 25, at 10am.

The bus tour will of­fer par­tic­i­pants the op­por­tu­nity to view the ex­hi­bi­tion and lis­ten to a floor talk by Ms Wil­liams.

Morn­ing tea will be pro­vided at the gallery be­fore con­tin­u­ing with a tour of Ms Wil­liams’ stu­dio at Howard.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion and book­ings, con­tact the gallery on 4130 4876.
