REMINISCENCE: Celebrating 100 Years of Australian Visionary Judith Wright | Fiona Rafferty and Frances Smith
John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery

29 July – 19 September

Reminiscence pays tribute to Judith Wright and her life. Wright, a fiercely intelligent and passionate woman, cared deeply about the land of her birth and the first people of Australia. Artist, Fiona Rafferty, was fortunate to reside in ‘Calanthe’, the former home of Judith Wright and Jack McKinney, on Tambourine Mountain for five months. Ceramicist, Frances Smith, has spent time on Tambourine Mountain. Sharing ideas, concepts and a great respect for Judith Wright they have produced a body of work that celebrates Wright and her legacy. Rafferty produced a series of works on paper and a series of paintings, and Smith created ceramics in Southern Ice porcelain and ceramic totems that pay tribute to stages in the life of Judith Wright. 

This exhibition is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland’s Playing Queensland Fund.

Art paves the way for scientific investigation at Murilla Kindy through a Queensland Government Artist-in-Residence Program. Logan artist Therese-Flynne Clarke, and local artist Penny Eamer, use adventures in eco-dying, printing, felting, painting and clay with the Murilla Kindy children, harnessing young children’s love of art and thirst for learning to teach early science concepts. This exhibition presents the results of their experiences.
