Public art focus at workshop

IF public art pieces like Tiddalik, our frog near the Condamine River, impress you then your attendance at a free seminar at Warwick Art Gallery this Friday is a must.

Organised by Museum and Gallery Services Queensland the workshop examines art policy and how we can support the development of art pieces for public spaces, buildings and parks.

Local art director Karina Devine said the workshop was the Southern Downs community’s opportunity to access information and funding for public art.

“Our region has the infrastructure and energy to develop its own remarkable artworks in public spaces,” she said.

“This workshop is a chance to see examples of successful contemporary projects.”

Ms Devine said guest speakers at the Queensland Government funded workshop would include Queensland University art lecturer Dr Sally Butler, well-known public artist Mandy Ridley and Robyn Daw representing the Art and Place Public Art Fund.

The workshop will run from 1.30-5pm this Friday with afternoon tea provided. For more details or to reserve a place please contact Warwick Art Gallery on 4661 0434.
