the other APT online exhibition..

‘the other APT‘, a multi-art form exhibition produced to coincide with and respond to the Queensland Art Gallerys Asia Pacific Triennial, with a similar focus – of art within the Asia-Pacific region. However, in the interest of protocol, best practice and inclusiveness, artworks were sought locally, within Australia, to highlight the fact that we have an interesting hybrid mix of artists, right here, right now, and are also in dialogue with the first people of Australia.

Talking Tapa

Posted by on | |

A terrific exhibition of Pacific Tapa in Queensland collections. The show Also provides a historical perspective about uses of tapa in various cultures of the pacific including Fiji, Tonga & PNG. I enjoyed the eclectic designs as well as display of equipment used to beat the cloth, to paint the designs& garments on display. There is a great element of engagement with Pacific communities in Queensland -sharing personal photos of weddings & i believe an outreach program & generally starting a dialogue about the diversity in Queensland in terms of the Pacific presence. Worth a look see..

I am a member of a community printmakers club in Brisbane called Impress, which is a terrific opportunity to meet other printmakers & talk shop. At the moment i do the newsletter, am part of the committee & will teach a couple of classes this year. One of the classes is the upcoming introductory linocut workshop that is basic & loads of fun. My other class consists of exploring layers/texture/line with collagraphs, one of my first loves. Look at the impress website for details.
