Spirit of the Wild

                     

  

The Gala Opening of The Glen Innes Art Gallery’s next exhibition is on Thursday 10th March at 6pm.(free entry, all welcome). “Spirit of the Wild” is an exhibition of sculpture and pastel drawings focusing on wild animals. Maggie Brockie from Stanthorpe and Helena South from Inverell have teamed up to present a show that everyone can enjoy. Maggie creates charming native animal sculptures out of clay that is later spray glazed. Several of her pieces are wall mounted. Helena’s masterly pastel drawings are of creatures native and otherwise, wild and not so wild, but equally charming. Both artists hold regular workshops. Maggie Brockie became a professional artist after a successful solo exhibition at Bungawarra Winery in 1998. She is basically self taught but has attended  workshops here and overseas including one in Italy in 2007. This will be her first exhibition with The Glen Innes Art Gallery. Helena South”s work will be well known to Glen Innes and Inverell art lovers as she has taken part in many exhibitions in both locations. For a number of years she attended the Glen Innes TAFE visual arts courses and honed her skills. She was a recent winner at the Glen Innes Show with one of her artworks. Head Glen Innes TAFE arts and ceramics teacher Max Powell, who taught both exhibiting artists, will be opening the exhibition. This exhibition runs from 14th march to 8th April (replaces Sam Austrin-Miner who had to withdraw due to work commitments). If you would like to meet Helena she will be at the gallery on Wednesday 16th, Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 31st March between 1 – 4pm and Friday 8th April 1 – 4pm.

Spirit of the Wild

Maggie Brockie and Helena South

Gala Opening 10th March 6pm

Exhibiton Open 14th March - 8th April

 

 Maggie Brockie and Helena South have joined forced to bring to us an exhibition of our favourite animals in sculpture and pastels. Maggie has a real knack of capturing the essense of these animals in her sculptures made from clay and bush wood.

About Maggie Brockie – Sculptor

Born in Tasmanian.

 I moved to the Sunshine State in 1977. Living on the Granite Belt still allows me to experience the four seasons, while enjoying the warmth of the Queensland sun.  

Having raised a family, and in my mid forties, I discovered the joy of working with clay in 1994.

Encouraged by family and friends I turned professional after a successful solo exhibition at Bungawarra Winery in 1998.

While basically self taught I have attended workshops with well-known International and National tutors.  In June 2007 I attended a 10day study tour and sculpture workshop in Italy organized and tutored by, Australian Sculptor, Janna Pameijer.

Influence greatly by my bush surroundings and inspired by the birds and ‘roos who visit my garden, I create realistic sculptures which capture the character and vulnerability of our ever diminishing wildlife.  With a focus on common through to endangered species I wish to convey a message of concern, yet hope for the natural environment.

My greatest challenge is to try to capture the life force of my subjects in the clay sculptures.

The majority of works are bisque fired in a gas kiln before being airbrushed using under glaze colours and then re-fired to1140C.

I conduct workshops in my bush studio and tutor away with community groups. I endeavor to keep my work exclusive to the Granite Belt, and exhibit locally with a permanent display at Bungawarra Winery, Ballandean. Studio visits are by appointment. Works are held in many overseas countries.

Helena is a pastelist from Inverell and brings such softness and detail to her artworks which make them a pleasure to view.

 Helena South”s work will be well known to Glen Innes and Inverell art lovers as she has taken part in many exhibitions in both locations. For a number of years she attended the Glen Innes TAFE visual arts courses and honed her skills. She was a recent winner at the Glen Innes Show with one of her artworks.
