Currently on show at Gatakers Artspace in Maryborough ( Queensland - Australia ) is my exhibition of 'rescued assemblage' artworks.
This creative hub was once robust warehouses for the bustling river port of Maryborough. The warehouses are among the oldest in Maryborough and have been sensitively restored to preserve the historic value of the buildings, while creating a contemporary exhibition space.
There are four exhibition spaces within the artspace - all occupying individual shows. Currently in the three other spaces are ...
The Beauty Within - Peter Kinson ... A collection of sculptures pushing the boundaries of 'possible' with natural timber and highlighting the beauty hidden within.
10 metres of Espresso - Wendy Talbot and friends ... This exhibition showcases sketches from their Tuesday morning coffee/art meeting at Station Square.
3 - Printmakers ...This exhibition focuses on contemporary printmaking processes by local and regional printmakers.
And so to Fragments Within ... here are a few of my 32 pieces on show ...
