Logan Art Gallery will soon host an exhibition showcasing women in front of and behind the camera.

The works are part of In Her Words, a photographic exhibition on tour from Horsham Regional Art Gallery in Victoria focused on women behind and in front of the camera.

This will be one of four exhibitions to be on display from July 31 to September 5.

The exhibitions will capture striking images of migration, Aboriginal life, youth and childhood, place, identity and expression.

The In Her Words exhibition recognises the significance of female photographers whose work is held by Horsham Regional Art Gallery.

Guest curator Olivia Poloni was invited to draw works from the collection alongside key figures in contemporary Australian photographic practice.

Rochedale South artist Mihimai Nikora has used sculpture, sound and digital media to create her immersive installation Ka Koroki Nga ManuThe singing of the birds.

The work explores cultural connections between Kaikaranga (women who perform ceremonial invitation in Māori culture) and Karangamanu (bird calls in nature).

This project is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund which is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Logan City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

Logan Art Gallery will showcase this year’s collection of World Environment Day posters designed by the City of Logan’s young artists.

The vibrant artworks celebrate World Environment Day which is an annual global event for positive environmental action.

Students from Rivermount College have created steampunk sculptures for their exhibition in The Young People’s Gallery.
