"Paper: more than a flat surface" will be presented by the Queensland Papermakers & Artists at Richard Randall Art Studio in the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens on Sunday 26th May from 1.00 pm and from Monday, 27th May to Sunday, 2nd June 2024, from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm - free admittance daily.



A common commodity in everyday life, paper mainly serves utilitarian functions, its uniqueness often overlooked in the traditional perception of artistic endeavours, not being perceived as a noble material like precious wood and metal or works on canvas. "Paper: more than a flat surface" will show our artists possess both deft technical skills in not only making the paper but also in the wide variety of techniques that can be presented with this supple yet robust material.



This exhibition presents works for your enjoyment in traditional bound books, dynamic contemporary artists books, 2D and 3D paper artworks, cyanotype, eco dyeing, collage, print techniques, mark making, art to wear, stitching on paper, boxed origami mask and roses as well as handmade papers from a wide variety of natural fibres.

Also featured this year is a mini exhibition with the theme "Pearl," which will feature the mini books created by our members to celebrate our thirtieth birthday in 2023.



Enjoy the collection of works on paper, then you can participate in our activity table where a selection of material will allow you to create your own special paper piece to take home.

A presentation of paper arts for your pleasure and purchase.
