here + now exhibition
The third annual HERE + now exhibition is now on at the Childers Arts Space.

The HERE + now exhibition is on dispaly at the Childers Arts Space showcasing 22 artists from across the region.

This is the third year of the project which celebrates different artists and celebrates the vibrant visual arts community within the Bundaberg Region.

Bundaberg Regional Galleries Director Rebecca McDuff said the exhibition was a great way to showcase the fantastic talent of local artists.

“This exhibition provides an annual snapshot of what is happening in visual arts within our community,” Ms McDuff said.

“This is the third year of the HERE + now exhibitions, which are displayed alternatively at the Bundaberg and Childers galleries.”

All artists whose work has been displayed have been chosen as part of an application process.

“Artists apply through an expression of interest process and must submit works that have been created in the preceding 12 months,” Ms McDuff said.

“The works showcased in the exhibition embody new developments within the regional arts scene, including new techniques or explorations from known artists, as well as work by emerging or lesser known artists.

“The Here + Now exhibition includes such a diverse range of works, from paintings, prints, ceramics, installation, to drawing, and there will be something of interest to every visitor.”

The artists on display include Chris Poulsen who has recently moved to the region and is a renowned jazz musician and visual artist.

His urban-scape oil paintings seek to capture the beauty of the everyday surroundings.

The Gallery Shop is also on site and showcases quality, hand-crafted products made by local artists and artisans.

HERE + now 2021 is on display until Sunday 5th September.
