This exhibition is of recent work by master potter Bill Powell where he explores new techniques and themes. The concept for the exhibition arose from Bill's recent residency at Vallauris in France where he says he stepped out of his "comfort zone" of producing fine crystaline glazed vessels to a freer, more conceptual style of work. This exhibition explores the harsh probabilities of climate change on the Australian landscape.

Featuring an eclectic program of 28 short films (across two screenings), the films have been selected from around the globe. There’s an incredible array of styles, people and approaches - from BAFTA-winning, hand-crafted animation and music videos to glimpses behind the scenes of makers’ studios, a life-size ceramic car and so much more.
You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy these films - themes are at times playful or meditative, some highlight social impact projects, there’s poetry and song, even boxing! Crafts include glass, basketry, ceramics, weaving, felting, letterpress, blacksmithing and metalwork, puppet and violin making.

29 JANUARY TO 21 MARCH 2021
SHIMMERING WORLD is an exhibition of new works by popular local Maleny ceramicist Shannon Garson. Highlighting the unique beauty of the sub-tropical rainforest landscape from a contemporary perspective, Garson’s multidisciplinary approach draws connections between the physical landscape and the landscape tradition- predominantly from a male perspective- within art. Garson’s installation of ceramic forms and mirrored drawings create both aesthetic and philosophical connections to our view of natural places as visitors, and even as part of the eco-system itself.
“Shannon Garson is known for her thrown porcelain vessels decorated with intricate drawings exploring the relationship between domestic forms and the infinite variety of striations, spots, and marks found in nature. Intense observation and drawings of the rainforest and the river’s edge underpin her entire work, intense, solitary work, consistently exploring the boundaries of what it is to be human in this shimmering, changeable, dazzling, world.”
