Logan artists to shine in new gallery exhibitions 

The work of three City of Logan artists will be showcased at the Logan Art Gallery Pop-Up from this Friday.

The opening at the gallery at Logan West Community Centre at Hillcrest will feature talks from 5.30pm by exhibiting artists Mark Kleine and Christina Lowry. 

Mark, a Logan Village artist, has produced a series of new photographic and digital  works titled Domina, which narrates a fictional relationship between a parent and  their gender-fluid child.  

Remember to live is the first solo exhibition at Logan Art Gallery for Christina, from  Rochedale South.  

She uses photography to draw parallels between the COVID-19 pandemic and the  plague outbreaks which influenced the still-life paintings of 17th century Dutch artists. 

Young Boronia Heights artist Oliver Murdoch created illustrations of superhero  characters for his Escaping stress exhibition. 

The new exhibition round will be opened at 6pm by Dr Martin Smith, a lecturer from  the Queensland College of Art at Griffith University. 

This round will be on display at Logan West Community Centre until September 3  while essential maintenance is undertaken at Logan Art Gallery in Logan Central. 

City Lifestyle Chair, Councilor Laurie Koranski says the operation of the pop-up  space has allowed Council to take the gallery to the community. 

“This has proved very popular with residents in the area surrounding Logan West  Community Centre.” 

Division 7 Councilor Tim Frazer says his local community has embraced the  opportunity to visit the gallery. 

“It has been a big hit taking it out into the suburbs and we are now considering what  further opportunities we can create throughout the city, not just at our main gallery.” 

Logan Art Gallery Pop-Up is open at 10am to 5pm between Tuesday and Saturday. Entry is free.

Logan West Community Centre is at 2 Wineglass Drive, Hillcrest.
