Handmade and unique gifts are available at Logan Art Gallery.
Amanda Slater is one of the artists involved with Logan Art Gallery’s
pop-up store which opens on December 4.

The City of Logan’s best artists, craft workers and designers have joined forces for a Christmas extravaganza.

They are taking part in the annual Logan treasures: art, craft and design pop-up store which is part of the latest round of exhibitions which open this Friday (December 4).

Six of the store’s artists will host a demonstration day in two sessions at the Logan Art Gallery this Saturday (December 5).

Participants can drop into the gallery any time between 11am and 12.30pm or between 2pm and 3.30pm.

Artists will demonstrate feature print-making, bobbin lace making, acrylic pouring, jewellery, knitting and handmade cards.

Social distancing requirements apply within the gallery.

The pop-up store, now in its seventh year, has become a Logan tradition and the ideal way to find a handmade and unique Christmas gift.

As part of this exhibition round, Daisy Hill artist Richard Blundell will return to the gallery to mark a significant milestone.

The artist is celebrating 50 years living in Logan with his fifth solo exhibition Gathering Gold featuring a new series of paintings.

Richard will be at the gallery on the exhibition opening night to discuss his works.

A staggered opening will be held.

Limited numbers of visitors can attend 30-minute sessions at 5pm, 5.45pm or 6.30pm this Friday (December 4).

Bookings are essential and can be made by calling 3412 5519.

Also featured in this exhibition round will be Faraimo Paulo in his first solo exhibition – Eleni – Navigators of Polynesia.

Faraimo often uses his family as models in his works and this exhibition will feature recent paintings depicting traditional stories from Samoa.

Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) recipients Merri Randell and Chris Denaro will present The Krabi Project in the Young People’s Gallery.

This exhibition documents the making of an animated film about a fiddler crab from Logan trying to find his family.

This project is supported by RADF which is a partnership between Logan City Council and the State Government to support local arts and culture.

Logan Art Gallery is on the corner of Jacaranda Ave and Wembley Rd, Logan Central.

It is open from 10am to 5pm between Tuesday and Saturday.
