GALA Gallery Director, Tracey Siddins pictured with two works by artist, Ingrid Bartkowiak (Brisbane, QLD) that will be exhibited as part of the upcoming 'Botanics' show.
GALA Gallery is set to show a stunning new exhibition, entitled ‘Botanics’, paying homage to our environment after the recent devastation of fires, flooding and current climate issues.
Featuring an all-female bill of Australian artists, ‘Botanics’ aims also to celebrate the beauty of our natural world, showcasing both its fragility and resilience.
Not to be confused with the soon-to-be revamped Council gallery, GALA Gallery is a private, commercial art space founded by director, Tracey Siddins, in November of last year.
“It’s really beautiful that it’s worked out that we have all female artists for this show,” Tracey says. “Each of their representations of nature are unique and individual, and forms a beautiful narrative as a collective.”
Also falling within Queensland Women’s Week, the exhibition is quite timely and apt, with the initiative’s theme of celebrating our diverse community of strong women.
“We’ll be holding two special opening events which are both already at full capacity, as well as a Women’s Week Breakfast, featuring a few of our featured artists, for those who missed out on the opening shows,” says Tracey.
The ‘Botanics’ exhibition will be showing from 29 February through to 26 March, with private viewings available by appointment as well.
