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.
Sculptors Qld Members Susan Margaret and Claudje Lecompte have approached the Museum Cabinet as an opportunity to re-stage their delicate ceramic and linen collaboration from 2017. This piece was judged 3rd prize (Frank Lambert Memorial Prize) at the 2017 Sculptors Qld Festival. Claudje has made the 120 or so ceramic pinch pots, with Susan making the tiny linen figures. Their work will be on display at the Old Museum until November.
Alceon Group are inviting SQ members to submit a proposal for a new indoor sculptural work for their foyer at 385 MACARTHUR AVENUE, HAMILTON.
The project has an overall budget of $20,000 and must be completed by 25th February 2022.
The work can take a variety of forms including:
• A sculpture sitting either on the floor or on a plinth.
• A work that fills the space either horizontally or vertically giving careful consideration of the experience of people using the staircase and of the stair and lift core edges.
There are no limitations on the materials that can be used but the concept should describe the materials as a response to the architectural materials of the space. Figurative sculptures are not preferred with the preference being for abstraction created in response to a meaningful intent concerning the architecture and foyer space, and reference to an aspect of the site/context such as its history or geography.
