We were lucky enough to be offered the vacant space, where the Gemutlich Kichenwares used to be to transform into an art space for December 2009 until mid-January 2010. Thanks so much Jim & Diana (Gemutlich has now moved to the Ipswich Mall).
We have been busily sourcing art works from local contemporary artists and are currently preparing the space for the display. The artists that will be displaying their work include Charmaine Davis, Kate Roberts, Donna Davis and Allan Saunderson.
The space will open to the public on Saturday 5 December 2009 and all the artworks are for sale. We are right next to the Cactus Espresso Bar, 173 Brisbane Street, Ipswich so drop in this weekend for a great coffee or yummy brunch and take in some art at the same time!

We recently launched the Ipswich Art Cards at Handmade Heaven in the Old Flour Mill, Top of Town. There are 5 designs in the current range that feature my photographic artworks. All the images in this range were captured around the CBD and Top of Town precincts and are taken from various series I'm currently completing including - Rooftops and Swichscapes.
These cards are now also available at the Ipswich Visitor Information Centre at 14 Queen Victoria Parade, Ipswich. They are a greeting style card with plenty of space inside for writing all your exciting Ipswich news and they come packaged with an envelope.
The cards are a fab way to keep in contact with friends and family, interstate or overseas and are a perfect addition to gift giving.
