Three exciting exhibitions were launched last Friday, 6 April 2018, at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum.
Local artists Jeanette Albury and Rosemary Anderson have collaborated to explore the diversity of the mangrove eco-systems and nearby environments in the Gladstone Harbour. The artists have responded to the environment using drawings and paintings on paper and canvas and have formed 3D sculptures using organic and repurposed materials. Both use their creativity to inspire, stimulate and motivate others to enjoy the environment in which we live.
One Life – Two Decades On:
Helmut Breckwoldt Retrospective
A commemorative exhibition revisiting one of Gladstone’s most well-respected artists, Helmut Breckwoldt. Although 2018 marks twenty years since his passing, Breckwoldt’s works continue to resonate with our regional communities, particularly Gladstone. The exhibition has been prepared in collaboration with the artist’s family.
‘I want to be in a book’
A Story about Cecil by Narelle Oliver
This exhibition by the late Queensland author and illustrator Narelle Oliver (1960 -2016) shows the development of her last picture book. The exhibition, originally curated by Jenny Stubbs for the Ipswich Regional Art Gallery, comprises the works made for the book and a retrospective of her stunning illustrative style. Narelle began creating books using pure linocut and over time her craft evolved to include collage, frottage and mixed media.
You have only a month to see these beautiful displays, make sure to visit the Gallery & Museum soon!
