Mirror Image; exciting new exhibition at the Gympie Gallery
BE SURE you don't miss the current exhibitions on view at the Gympie Regional Gallery.
Upstairs in The Gympie Times Exhibition Space is an exhibition that comes from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University that displays prints alongside their plate or "matrix".
The title of the exhibition, Mirror Image: Prints and Plates, reveals wood blocks, etchings and lithographs that are displayed with the block, plate or stone and includes some of Australia's top printmakers, including Judy Watson, Tim Mosely, Russell Craig, Carolyn McKenzie-Craig, David Jones, Glen Skien, Claudia Husband and Ryan Presley.
While you are visiting, make sure you see the Heritage Art Competition exhibition downstairs in the ground floor gallery.
Artists were asked to prepare a painting on any aspect of our heritage within the Gympie region around the theme of Conflict and Compassion, which was set by the National Trust of Australia and commemorates conflict and compassion and how it has shaped our identity.
Prizes were presented to the winners last Wednesday and the winner of the adult section with $1000 was Meaghan Shelton with a painting titled Embedded.
Second prize of $350 went to Kerrie Atkins with Daddys' Home and third prize of $150 to Naomi Robinson with Whispered Memories.
Winner of the youth section went to Maxine Kuershner, second to Anneke Harris and third to Krystal Jones.
The children's section was won by Oscar Koch, second to Liam Spies and third to Hayley James.
Both exhibitions will be on view until Saturday, June 13.
Gympie Regional Gallery is situated at 39 Nash Street, just up the hill form Goldfields Plaza, with opening hours from 10am-4pm Tuesday to Saturday.
