Emerging Logan artist Teresa Poon unveiled her works at Logan Art Gallery yesterday (Friday, October 23).
The former Redeemer Lutheran College student will hold her first solo exhibition at the gallery.
This is part of a mentorship she received at the 2019 annual Artwaves exhibition, now in its 28th year.
It showcases the creativity of secondary school students from Logan and adjacent areas.
Under the mentorship, Logan Art Gallery staff have supported Teresa over the past year to develop her own exhibition under the title The ripple effect: out of Artwaves.
She will join Brisbane artist Claudia Husband and an interstate travelling exhibition for the gallery’s next round from today to Friday, November 28.
Claudia’s Purple Rain exhibition features a series of lithographs and works on paper.
It highlights the yearly jacaranda season and the blanket of purple blooms which cover many South-East Queensland streets each spring.
Rounding out the program is the travelling exhibition Stopping Time: Material Prints 3000 BC to Now.
The exhibition features original objects, prints and artworks – some are thousands of years old.
They are on loan from the Griffith University Art Museum, the Newcastle Region Art Gallery and several private collections.
The exhibition tells the story of the printed image from ancient Mesopotamia to now.
