Current exhibitions: 10 March to 22 April

Jo Bone: In Depth

Jo Bone creates beautiful blown glassware inspired by found objects from the seashore, including seagrasses, sand dollars and other marine creatures. In this new body of work, the artist has revisited her childhood love of pattern and repetition. The sense of depth and layers within the surface of each piece invites intimate observation and quiet contemplation.

Sha Sarwari: Silent conversation

Drawing on his own experience as a refugee, Sha Sarwari has created a series of works which comment on the experience of asylum seekers and refugees in contemporary Australia.

Sara Irannejad: Ambiguous patterns

In Ambiguous patterns Sara Irannejad uses pyrography (wood burning) to create intricate patterns on found objects. This exhibition explores how cultural identity and one’s relationship with the environment evolve during travel and dislocation. In this exhibition, Irannejad combines Persian motifs with fragments of old Queensland houses and furniture, highlighting aspects of migration, nostalgia, history, belonging and re-establishment.
