Gladstone Region Artist Windows
December 17, 2015
Various Council venues temporarily transformed by pop-up art project
Sixteen windows across five Gladstone Regional Council venues have a new look until January 31 with 13 local artists inspirationally transforming them as part of a pop-up public art project.
Artists gained new skills in project development at a workshop led by Creative Regions Inc director Rod Ainsworth and have worked collaboratively to present a series of window displays across the region.
Council's Community Services portfolio spokesperson Councillor Maxine Brushe said the Artist Windows initiative was hosted in conjunction with 2015 International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies.
"The creative window displays highlight the talents of a selection of Gladstone Region artists and provides a new dimension to office windows through inspirational and thought-provoking visual elements," Cr Brushe said.
"The last of the 16 art installations was unveiled on Monday with the Year of Light Artist Windows utilising a mix of media.
"Artists have been able to share their talents while expressing their work creatively to attract a passing audience at any time of the day."
Participating venues include the Agnes Water Community Centre, Boyne Tannum Community Centre, Calliope Library, Gladstone city offices, Mount Larcom Rural Transaction Centre and Miriam Vale Library.
Year of Light Artist Windows is supported by the Gladstone Region Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a Queensland Government and Gladstone Regional Council partnership project to support local arts and culture.
