Hanging ‘Collective Insites’ exhibition, Gatakers Artspace, Maryborough

It seemed like it was never going to happen. The gallery looked like a construction site. It’s hard to image what comes before a beautifully  presented exhibition in a white cube gallery space. Chaos and stress.

Niels Ellmoos was hard at work putting together the frame-work for his massive charcoal drawing. His portable museums were a mass of bits and pieces, tools, glues, and unkowns.

Susan Hutton seemed like she was on a dream run, putting together four of her five pieces in record time. But it seemed like a cat was going to be her undoing. Many tries later the cat finally conformed to Susan’s idea of where and how it should sit on its pedestal.

It was then up to Christine Turner to create havoc and challenge everyone to remember how the mangle went back together. Trevor Spohr from Gatakers was his usual unflappable self coming up with solutions to every  problem, and finding a way to get everything done.

Of course Fiona Mohr also had a hand in trying to put that mangle back together.  In the end we had to call in the experts in the guise of Patrick from Mavis Bank.  Fiona  was heard emitting huge sigh of relief that her expertise would no longer be called into question.

Over in a corner was what we  affectionately called ‘the Tardis’, but which was, in reality David Hodges’ installation. Sometime after lunch  workmen in flurescent vests arrived and started doing all sorts of things to it. We don’t know what. Perhaps they were attempting time travel. We’re looking forward to how this thing is going to operate, if it does. Peta Duggan was nowhere to be found. We think she was at home putting the finishing touches to a fantastic and amazing sculpture that will definitely not be able to be transported and will never fit into the lift to the first floor. But we hope she’s having fun. John Meyers from the military Museum came in to  go over her work with a fine tooth comb and we are pleased to say he actually liked some pieces. Thanks John!

Make sure you’re there for the opening of this amazing exhibition. Gatakers Gallery, Maryborough, Friday May 6th, 6 pm. The catering  is going to be great! All are welcome to attend.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think of if you added some
    great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

    Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this website
    could certainly be one of the best in its niche. Good blog!
