The Murmur of Surfaces, opening at the Caboolture Regional Gallery on 2 May 2015, is a Moreton Bay Regional Council Art Collection In Perspective exhibition that showcases the strength and diversity of Sharon Jewell’s artistic career to date. The title, Murmur of Surfaces, refers both to the material and compositional emphasis of much of the work in this exhibition. The drawings in her new body of work focus on objects that might be described simply as surfaces; such as paper, cloth and walls.

An exhibition of new paintings and wall based sculptures Geometricks II by Lyndal Hargrave will be exhibited at the Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland from May 15, 2015.
Hargrave is fascinated by the underlying structure of things and the sense of pattern that lies beneath the chaos of life. Geometry is at the heart of her investigations, from the patterns of spider webs to the movement of the planets. The exhibition also explores and exploits 3 D illusion and the eternal quest of the artist to breath life into a two dimensional surface.
