This exhibition brings together works inspired by Donna Malone’s recent study tour. Last year Donna spent months travelling through the European summer where the artist became entrenched in European ways of life.
In the South of France she used her time drawing and recording the language and ethos of her age-old surroundings while in Venice, in the crumbling basement of a palace on one of the city’s many small canals, she became increasingly exhilarated to find herself impulsively deconstructing and reconstructing her earlier French work… as well as her own aspirations.
Margaret Genever and Laurel McKenzie are exhibiting a suite of collaborative printworks at Artroom @ Vivo, 49 Williams Esplanade, Palm Cove, Queensland. One of the pleasures of printmaking is its collaborative nature, whether sharing a press or a process. The works for Beastie and the Beaut: old tales, new skins, evolved out of mutual admiration between Laurel McKenzie and Margaret Genever for each other's work, and a desire to leverage a shared interest in drawing and its translation into print.

Sally Duihg's solo exhibition, Dead Bird Diary, will run from 7 April - 2 May, 2015 at WAG Upstairs at Wolloongabba Art Gallery, Brisbane.
Sally has been drawing, painting and making sculptures of birds since 2011. Empathy and awe at their beauty originally attracted Sally to the birds but consideration for their future in the urban environment has been explored, particularly in the sculptures, in the exhibition where it seems as though a contemporary Charles Darwin has proposed their future form where bird, car and computer parts have been brought together.
