An exhibition of abstract paintings and small sculptures that reflect the environmental impacts of climate change upon landscapes will be held at Bisoux in Woolloongabba this weekend.
The exhibition, called the Shelly Kelly Art and Sculpture Exhibition will display abstract map paintings by the London Institute-trained Brisbane artist, Shelly Kelly.
Shelly has exhibited her work in major national sculpture exhibitions including the McClelland Sculpture Survey & Award and the Helen Lempriere National Sculpture Award. And, every year she exhibits them in the Swell Sculpture Festival at Currumbin.
Shelly says the abstract paintings were inspired by Melissa Lucashenko’s book, Mullumbimby.
“Melissa’s book certainly altered my view of Mt Warning – a place I know well,” she says.
The exhibition will also feature live music.
The Shelly Kelly Art and Sculpture Exhibition will be held on Saturday 28 November from 4pm to 8pm and Sunday 29 November 10am to 5pm at Bisoux on 20 Logan Road in Woolloongabba.
