TWO IPSWICH ARTISTS SELECTED FOR THE QLD REGIONAL ART AWARDS TOURING EXHIBITION
Laura Phillips and LeAnne Vincent, two artists from the Ipswich Contemporary Arts Network, have had their artworks selected for the 2010 Queensland Regional Art Awards Touring Exhibition, 'Our Place', organised by Flying Arts Inc.
Only twenty-four artists were selected by the curator of contemporary Australian art for the Queensland Art Gallery, Francis Parker. The works selected are 'Standing in the grass', oil painting by Laura Phillips and 'Top of Town', photographic artwork by LeAnne Vincent.
The exhibition will be launched in February 2011 at the Queensland State Library and the works will then tour on to four regional galleries throughout Qld. This is a significant accomplishment and will assist in promoting Ipswich and our artists to the wider Qld communities.
Both artists are currently exhibiting other works at the SWICH Contemporary Art Space, 191 Brisbane Street, Ipswich.
