Artist windows workshop opportunity


Join Creative Regions' Director Rod Ainsworth, for an exciting project proposal workshop, in conjunction with the 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, from 10.30am Saturday November 7, at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum.


Artists will have the chance to work collaboratively, as part of a series of locally created artist window displays to be hosted across the region in Gladstone Regional Council venues.


Working towards the Year of Light theme, the installations will showcase the extraordinary talent of the Region's creative community and provide a visual extravaganza for all to enjoy.


Gallery & Museum Curator, Jo Duke welcomes the chance to explore public windows as innovative exhibition spaces, and a great opportunity to enhance an artist's CV.


"Artist windows have a long tradition within the cultural community. From Salvador Dali in 1939 and Sidney Nolan's early years with Abbotsford's Fayrefield Hats, through to more recent times where Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has created artist windows for Louis Vuitton, "she said.


"The artist window project will celebrate public art and inspire many wonderful community discussions."


The selected proposals will be installed during the first two weeks of December and continue on display until Sunday 31 January 2016.


Artist Windows is supported by the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development (RADF), a Queensland Government and Gladstone Regional Council partnership project to support local arts and culture.
