This week’s Messenger column - Around the Traps.
Margaret MacAdam is Artist of the Month for November at the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre. Margaret, a passionate conservationist has a’ thing’ for trees. Wandering around her Morayfield property, Margaret looks for patterns in the Scribbly Gum. These patterns become basis for her art work. The colours Margaret uses, range from dynamic purples and oranges to earthy browns and greens. She has titled her pieces as to what SHE can see in them and often the viewer can see what she can see but sometimes they see something else entirely, or nothing at all except for striking patterns and colours. Margaret is delighted with all of these reactions as she says...that is Art. A collection of her work is on display and available for purchase, Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm, 191 Sunderland Drive, Banksia Beach 4507. Ph 3408 9288.
If you had a chance to participate in any of the Artisan Wonderland Workshops throughout the year you are invited to join a celebration of the program. Workshop Participants are encouraged to bring along their art pieces created during the workshops, - creating an exhibition on the day.
Date: Sunday 28 November
Place: Queens Park Environmental Centre
