Experimental Art
If you happen to be near George Street, pop into the QUT Art Gallery. If you work in the city grab a sandwich and wander down for an educational lunch hour.

Known as "The Churchie" it was an initiative of the Anglican Church Grammar School and 'dedicated to supporting a new generation of artists.'

At the moment the exhibition is of 23 Churchie National Emerging Art Prize finalists. There is a variety of innovative and unusual works.

One room is given to Light works - a video and clear panels upon which patterns are illuminated.

I also liked the In Our Hands series of photographs.

Admission is free, so what do have to lose. Even if the artworks are not particularly to your taste you'll have a lovely walk return via the Gardens. The exhibition runs from 20th August to 13th November 2016.

If you are travelling to the gallery by bus the stop you want is Alice Street approaching George Street, Stop 95A. Or you can catch a train to Central and walk down.
