The Exploration of Materiality and Expanding Disciplines @ THE SHED - SATURDAY, JUNE 26, 4-6pm

Saturday 26 June 2021 — 4:00pm

SQ would like to invite you to a panel discussion with our resident artist Perrin Millard. Millard has invited a series of cross-disciplinary artists to the table to frame a discussion around process and materiality from an artist standpoint. There is a diverse lineup of artists speaking who all work across a variety of artistic media such as painting, sculpture, installation, sound, theatre and ceramics. While non-medium specific, this discussion will closely explore how one’s medium can affect the message, and will in turn explore the unique possibilities and power of sculpture. 

"I’m interested in a panel discussion that pertains to the expansion or overarching of disciplines, and the broad capacity of medium specificity. This is an interesting concept for me being a painter that expands work into other disciplines, in particular sculpture” - Perrin Millard

SCULPTORS QUEENSLAND @ The Old Museum - NEW EXHIBITION SPACE

SQ have partnered with The Old Museum to activate one of their museum display cases. We have exclusively opened this opportunity to SQ members and have been developing an exciting program of solo and group exhibitions in this space. This cabinet is situated in a high traffic foyer area within The Old Museum, where new and diverse audiences will be able to engage with Queensland Sculpture. The display will rotate regularly. Make sure to drop in for a look during your next visit to the museum.

Our first display (pictured) included work by two of our dedicated committee members Hermann Schraut and Ian Manley. Ian displayed two figurative wood pieces titled 'Spirit Girl' and 'Resting Sailor'. Herman included a selection of wood and hebel stone work that showcased a wide array of techniques, styles and influences.

MUSEUM DISPLAY - CURRENT ARTIST - BROOKE FERGUSON - CLOSING EVENT @ THE OLD MUSEUM - FRIDAY, JUNE 18, 9am - 12pm

We would like to invite you to the Old Museum to celebrate the conclusion of our cabinet display by SQs previous resident artist Brooke Ferguson. 

Brooke will be at the museum foyer to welcome visitors between 9am to 12pm on Friday June 18. If you missed our previous artist-in-residence event at The Shed, this is your last chance to see a selection of furniture items from Clement Meadmore's book, 'How To Make Furniture Without Tools' (1975).

'Meadmore Music' on limited edition 12 inch vinyl that was created to accompany furniture made during the SQ residency will be for sale. This electronic musak was produced in collaboration with Brussels based musician Stefan Huber, with the vinyl sleeve design by artist Jan Timme. The musak will be available to listen to in-situ with the display.  

480 Gregory Terrace, Bowen Hills, Queensland 4006 *Foyer entry at side of museum facing the gardens, turn right on entering museum gate.

This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

MUSEUM DISPLAY - UP NEXT - MARGARET KLUCIS

Up next in this space is Sculptors Qld Life Member Margaret Klucis. This new display will focus on Margaret’s unique creative voice as a sculptor, painter, environmentalist and explorer of many art forms and ideas.  Margaret has explored many mediums which include bronze, ceramics, glass, stone and hebel, as well as painting and drawing. This display also highlights Margaret’s previous success as a prize winner at the Brisbane Sculpture Festival in 2018.  With the Brisbane Sculpture Festival happening again now in its 51st year at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens, SQ has so much to celebrate in its ongoing support and dedication to promoting sculptors and sculpture in Queensland.  Do stop by Margaret’s display on your next visit to the Old Museum after June 19.
