Revealed Exhibition - Artists Talk

Saturday 20 November was the date for the artist talk at the Revealed Exhibition at BCC Brisbane Square Library. 

A group of about 10 people, mostly Papermakers members, gathered around the cabinets eager to hear about the works on display.  After an introduction by Sandra, each exhibitor gave a short talk on their work which triggered questions and short discussions about ideas and techniques. 

So although there weren't many 'novices' to induct into our paper artistry world, we all benefited from hearing our fellow papermakers talk about their work, and allowed us a glimpse into each member's art practice.  Afterwards we had an informal catch up over lunch.

Thanks to all that participated and thanks to Tricia for the photos.

Revealed Exhibition - The Installation

Yesterday was installation day for the Revealed Exhibition at the Brisbane Square Library.

Di, Jill B, Joanna, Ngaire and Sandra installed over 30 works into cabinets and onto the walls.  All agreed that it looks great, unfortunately photos just don't do it justice.

The work will be in until the end of December.   Don't forget the launch on Saturday 13 November 12 noon, and the artist talk on Saturday 20 November at 11am.

Come and have a look, invite your friends!
