LAND OF THE MOST HOLY MARY

Ellen Appleby and Mick Ward

Ceramics, heritage ceramics, sculptures, plus photography


The lime washed walls, weathered stones, archways and religious contradictions of southern Spain.

Through sepia shaded photographs and rich textured sculptures Mick Lord (photographer) and Ellen Appleby (ceramicist) bring into focus the juxtaposition of remnants of Romans, Moors, Moslems, Jews and Christians seen in Andalusia - the Land of the Most Holy Mary.

NOOSA SPINNERS AND WEAVERS – TIME FOR NATURAL

Karen Grady, Sue Punshon & Anne Russell

From pure and natural fibres, time is given to spin, knit, weave and crochet these unique pieces. These three local Noosa artisans have embarked on an ethical and moral endeavour to craft hand-made fashion which is classical, sophisticated and very wearable. This is what we call slow fashion.

ABOUT DESIGN

About Design brings together Sue Trethowan-Jones' keen design sense with her own unique decoupage and painting style. Each piece is a testament to her patience and skill which can have up to thirty layers of adhesives and require three weeks to complete. A love of textiles and fashion form a common thread throughout the featured collection.

LAYERS OF LANDSCAPE KAREN MCAULIFFE

Recent TAFE graduate and award winning artist, Karen McAuliffe works instinctively to observe the many strata within the environment. Going beyond the big picture of a landscape she creates unique layers which build a majesty enticing the viewer to look deeper.

19th Feb – 23rd March

A LOOK WITHIN

Michelle Maclennan presents a range of mixed media works from vibrant paintings to detailed drawings which have been produced over the last ten years. Her artworks reflect both personal health struggles within the mind and our interdependence with nature. The focus is upon growth, understanding and the journey forward. However, as each aspect develops over time, so does the natural environment's fight for survival.

19th Feb – 23rd March

MATTERS OF THE MIND

Wendy Epp’s fascination with the mind and its processes is the basis of this exhibition. The supreme importance of a healthy, happy mind in achieving a healthy, happy life largely dominates the artist's approach and output. Epp captures the mind’s perception of daily events and personal environments to provide food for thought.

30 X 30

Many of Brenton Schwab’s paintings are abstract, and can be read as landscapes (whether an aerial view or a detail from a forest floor) they reflect the abstract beauty seen in nature. Brenton's years of experience in exploring image making techniques have come together to produce this fascinating body of work.

26th March – 8th May

Gallery Hours: Tues. - Fri. 10am - 4pm, Weekends 10am - 3pm.
