Bizzart Birthday

Article excerpt

EVERYONE has a birthday, including the Gympie Regional Gallery, which will turn 11 on February 28. Every year since the gallery opened the very supportive Friends of the Gallery group celebrate this event with a party and the community is invited. It is called Bizzart Day, a play on bizarre and art and this will be the 12th Bizzart Day.

The public is invited to explore the gallery, witness the opening of three exhibitions, enjoy a sausage sizzle, maybe participate in some artwork - particularly if you have children, watch others doing artwork, listen to some music and generally catch up on what your gallery is doing.

Don't miss the cake cutting at 11am. There will be face painting, portrait drawing and lots of other activities. See a fabulous textile exhibition on the shibori technique called Shibori Unbound by Margaret Barnett in the Hugo du Rietz Gallery and a special exhibition curated by local artist Sam Keane called Native Pods - a creative interpretation in The Gympie Times Exhibition Space - to complement the Mary River Festival on March 21. Twenty artists have been selected to give their interpretation on the seedpod in many different mediums.

Gallery Three will be the most unusual new media exhibition or rather experience in Intimate Transactions. The gallery will be linking with Rockhampton Regional Gallery at 12.30pm when the general managers of the Rockhampton and Gympie papers will interact simultaneously using their bodies connected through the internet. The public will have an opportunity to book into a half hour session from Thursday, March 5 to March 21. The connection with Rockhampton will only happen on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Bookings essential on 5481 0733. Check them all out on Saturday, February 28, 10.30am-2.30pm.


EXHIBITION erasure by Margaret Ellen Turner continues until February 22 in The Gympie Times Exhibition Space. …
