Yu Chao Du: Doll park
Rochedale South artist Yu Chao Du has, until recently, travelled regularly to China to work on city landscape design projects. However, forced to stay in one place since the spread of COVID-19 he has found his art practice has shifted from an exuberant celebration of city architecture to a more personal reflection of his own life and influences.
His recent work reflects on our shared sense of powerlessness and frustration as individuals affected by a global pandemic.
Kyra Mancktelow: Unsilenced
Unsilenced is the first major solo exhibition by Crestmead artist Kyra Mancktelow (Quandamooka, Mardigan, South Sea Islander). It incorporates a series of prints, sculpture, ceramics, paintings and weavings.
Unsilenced exposes untold histories of Australia. It showcases the unique way the artist and other First Nations people view the world through distinct ways of life such as land, law and ceremony.
This project is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Logan City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.

From Clay to Computer
An exhibition of small objects created by year eleven students from Woodridge State High School and Kingston College. The title of the project reflects the use of clay modelling as a scaffold.
