Here is this week's Messenger column - What’s On
There is so much happening over the next couple of weeks, lots to see and do across the region and a little further afield. So grab your diaries and make a note of these dates.
Between Spaces is an exhibition of works by students from ARTstART Contemporary Art Program. Earlier in the year I featured Carol Bisset’s program which encourages artists to develop their own ideas and learn how to process images. The Exhibition is being held in the Redcliffe City Art Gallery, 470 Oxley Ave, Redcliffe from 27th May – 11th June. Opening Night is Thursday 27th May from 6pm.
Artisan is opening their second (m)art design store at South Bank on the Wednesday 26th May. (m)art South bank will be the place to buy exceptionally designed and crafted ceramics, glassware and textiles. With its ever-changing display it’s sure to be a place that you will visit time and time again. You can find the store at Shop B13, 166 Grey St, South Bank.
Something for our younger readers, on Saturday 29th May there will be a Harajuku Party at the New Caboolture Library from 1pm – 5.30pm. How does this fit into the Handmade genre? Included in this event is Cos Play, short for costume play, is a form of performance art where participants wear costumes they have made. So if your efforts to encourage your young person to start sewing have so far fallen on deaf ears this event might be just the spark they need.
As part of the Moreton Bay Regional Art Awards there will be an Art & Craft Market at the Strathpine Community Centre on Saturday 29th May from 10am – 3pm. Artists from across the region will selling everything from cards and jewellery to paintings and textiles. For more information contact the Pine Rivers art gallery on 3480 6941.
On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th May the Mountain Quilters will be holding their annual Quilt Show at the Peachester Hall, Peachester. I will be there with my fabrics and threads so pop up and say hello. This quilt show is eagerly awaited by the quilting community so why not come for a drive and enjoy the creative talents of this community.
