It’s our pleasure to introduce the “Monday Painters – A Brisbane Artist Collective”.
We are a small, diverse group of artists who came together a year ago, seeking a creative environment with like minded artists, beyond our studios.
Over this past year we’ve gained so much more than we expected :- friendship, artistic support, and a community that blossomed alongside our creative endeavours.
When we meet on “Mondays” our time is spent creating, critiquing , planning bodies of work, experimenting and sharing ideas. Our different, yet complementary styles and mediums feed our creativity and we are excited to now exhibit together and share it with you as a group.
This inaugural exhibition is unlike the usual collections you see from us in galleries and shows, because it visually represents the creative time we spend together. The full lifecycle of our work is on display, including our initial exploratory studies, works on paper, paintings produced through the rhythm of our practice, sometimes resulting in final, fully resolved pieces.
Our meeting place, The Brookfield Art Pavilion, is part of the Brookfield Showgrounds in the rural western suburbs of Brisbane. Whilst the original building was pulled down and replaced 30 years ago, the location has been a dedicated art space for nearly 100 years! We feel very fortunate to be here.
As a collective and individually, we would like to acknowledge and pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land we now gather on, the Turrbal & Yuggera people.
“Mondays” have now become a valued part of our practice. It is special to us, and we hope you find something special from it also.
Thank you for your support.
