It's Not Easy Being Green - Opening Night Friday 28th February 6pm - 9pm
Exhibition running until 19th March 2014.

Art Design Precinct hold many excellent exhibitions throughout the year and their upcoming opening night for "It's Not Easy Being Green", will be no exception.

They want to fill the gallery with images from nature and so far have had some exciting talent heed the call. Given the topicality of environmental issues, I'm sure it will be a powerful exhibition. Art is a great vehicle to at once express the emotions of these issues whilst giving the spectator an alternative view for contemplation.

Songstress Naomi Sunderland will be performing live on opening night, her ambient folk music and hypnotic voice offering light and soul to perfectly compliment the works. One of her latest music videos, Fully Formed, was recorded in the gallery at Art & Design Precinct.

An intriguing, local Brisbane artist Karen Benjamin, makes all sorts of amazing art from heat shrunk plastic bags and other disposable items that one would normally throw away (or hopefully recycle). Completely self taught, Karen is an emerging artist to keep an eye on.
