Art in the Garden
There's plenty of creativity at the Bribie Island Art Centre on Sunderland Drive, and there's plenty on show at a formerly little courtyard which has been lovingly turned into a new gallery. Welcome to the Seasoned Gallery, which opened early in October.
In the middle a large tree trunk, "Stumpy", which remained after the rest of the leopard tree which was removed recently, is a funky piece of work, which changes frequently. In fact, the whole gallery changes frequently as people "fall in love" with the funky art pieces and choose to purchase them. Other pieces take their place.
The artworks on sale are made from timber, ceramic, pottery, glass, wire and metal. Delicate mess fairies swing from the branches, and bright ceramic flowers bring wonderful colour to the garden.
Artists of all mediums are invited to exhibit and sell in the gallery. Interested artists should contact the gallery curator DayAnanda at the centre on (07) 3408 9288 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stumpy" is its feature icon, from which a whimsical terracotta head of Puck (from Midsummer Night's Dream) stands sentinel., looking over the many garden "rooms" of artworks.
The Gallery, with its mossy adornments, tinkling fountain and shady nooks and crannies is the only one of its kind in south-east Queensland.
There's an art wall for visitors to decorate seeds and hang them on a mesh wall, in the same trend of posting personal love locks on bridges around the world.
