The Woolloongabba Art Gallery will host a number of exhibitions over the coming months, showcasing the best Australian artists.
Opened on July 25th and currently showing, Drawn In showcases drawings from Ian Smith, Ron McBurnie, Peter Hudson and Euan Macleod. The exhibition champions the art of drawing and how this type of work can be used as a way of thinking about one thing or everything.
Following this on September 2nd the Ngaaykulam-Patju Tjamuku Kapiliku Jurkurpa (Our Grandfather and Grandmothers Stories) exhibition featuring Papulankutja artists will commence. The gallery will be filled with artwork from a small community at the base of the Blackstone Ranges, Western Australia. These paintings are rich in stories emanating from their sense of history, culture and place.
Also opening the same day outside the gallery is the The Mount Coot-Tha Project featuring Des Rolph. The Brisbane artist has created an exhibition of 42 small oil paintings that takes the viewer on a visual walk around Mt Coot-tha. The intent of this exhibition is to make a historical documentation of the vistas of Brisbane, the local landmarks, and recreational spaces that visitors to this mountain know and love.
