Constellations by award-winning multimedia artist Donna Maree Robinson, along with local artist Tiarn Florence who is being mentored by Donna, will create a full-on, multi-media exhibition experience celebrating women who broke the ceiling, prioritised bravery and trusted their visions.
Donna was a finalist in the international Lumen Art Prize and winner of the Queensland Regional Arts Digital Art Award in 2012.
This exhibition has been assisted by Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Gympie Regional Council to support the development of local arts and culture.
On display in the Hugo Du Rietz Gallery is Lace by Mary Elizabeth Barron.
Mary creates an ethereal environment exploring themes of traditional ‘female’ handicrafts and environmental concerns.
This is achieved through the creation of large scale bobbin lace pieces made from clear plastic bags, displayed in a way to allow visitors to become immersed within the exhibition. Inspired by the Mary River, an installation of artwork will adorn the Gallery veranda.
Entry to the Gympie Regional Gallery at 39 Nash Street is free, with opening hours from 10am to 4pm Tuesday to Saturday. For more information, or to make bookings for workshops and themed activities, visit gympie.qld.gov.au/gallery or call 5481 0733.
