Dan Elborne

‘Permanence’ is a solo exhibition comprising a series of objects primarily constructed from the bi-product of a recent, long-term body of work which, through its production, left a large amount of fired ceramic particles. Many of these particles come from clay collected in the local areas which are part of ‘The Regions’.

Dan’s exhibition opened at the Rosalie Gallery at 89 Mocatta St, Goombungee QLD 4354 on Friday 12th April, from 7-9pm for refreshments and a Q&A with the artist, all welcome.

Kim Walmsley

Saturday 13th April, Rosalie Gallery, 89 Mocatta Street, Goombungee, 10am-1pm

Facilitator and artists Kim Walmsley held a workshop where, in a small group, participants worked from individual stories, to shared stories of family, heritage and historical knowledge of place to create an artwork they could keep.

Places were limited, so participants needed to register their interest through the Rosalie Gallery or at: hello@theregions.net
