I'm a grandmother, a retired teacher, an avid reader who loves historical re-enactment, English Country Dance, writing and Op Shopping. My business www.StepIntoHistory.com.au is designed to help children experience history through school incursions.
Logan Art Gallery on Wembley Rd is a great place to pop in if you have even half an hour to spare. I always call in when I'm in the area and there is always something amazing to enjoy.
The current exhibitions include collages of print, paint, stitching, basket weaving, textile weaving and lights.
Although use of textiles is, to an extent a theme, each exhibition is unique and incredible.
Therese Flynn-Clarke of Bannockburn explains her exhibition, Patterns of My Days in a video which is as interesting as the artwork. She explains her process and where her ideas came from. I was very tempted by a few of the smaller works, which are only $40.
Patterns of My Days - inspired by her travels in regional Queensland.
In Internal Landscapes, Chrys Zantis uses a variety of textiles and lights to create sculptures of the internal working of the body. It sounds weirdly medical but it's fascinating and beautiful.
Green Asylum artist Charlotte Hayward also uses fabric and textiles to create 'experimental architectural tapestry'. The works are used to tell stories within the Australian landscape.
It's worth a visit just to see the huge building created from textiles.
Eagleby artist Ria Willering's Footsteps shows semi-abstract impressions of urban landscapes and architectural structures of multi-cultural Australia. Sadly my photos of her striking work are too blurred to use (I should wear my glasses).
Exhibitions change on 15th June.
There is also a gift shop where the items on sale are varied and of high quality.
