Exhibition's final days on this weekend

ON SATURDAY April 28, Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum welcomed local artists Jeanette Albury and Rosemary Anderson, for an artist talk about their exhibition Fragile Balance.

Since opening, Fragile Balance has received great feedback from visitors. "Just loved this exhibition! Big congratulations to Jeanette and Rosemary" and, "Fragile Balance - superb exhibition, just beautiful" are among the comments left by visitors.

Fragile Balance is on display in Town Hall Gallery until May 19. The exhibition is accompanied by a children's activity book and equipment from Boyne Island Environmental Education Centre.

This weekend is your last chance to see One Life - Two Decades On: Helmut Breckwoldt Retrospective and I Want to be in a Book; A Story About Cecil by Narelle Oliver. Both exhibitions are in the O'Connell Gallery of the Art Gallery & Museum.

One Life - Two Decades On: Helmut Breckwoldt Retrospective is a commemorative exhibition revisiting one of Gladstone's most well-respected artists, Helmut Breckwoldt. Although 2018 marks 20 years since his passing, Breckwoldt's works continue to resonate with our regional communities, particularly Gladstone. The exhibition has been prepared in collaboration with the artist's family.

I Want to be in a Book by the late Queensland author and illustrator Narelle Oliver (1960-2016) shows the development of her last picture book. The exhibition is comprised of the works made for the book and a retrospective of her stunning illustrative style. Oliver began creating books using pure lino-cut and over time her craft evolved to include collage, frottage and mixed media.
