THE BUREAU OF DODGY DREAMS is a journey into the subconscious with mask puppetry and illusion.

Compassion – an exhibition of artist’s books – 28 June  to 21 July, Old Ambo Galleries

Compassion – an exhibition of artist’s books – 28 June to 21 July, Old Ambo Galleries

COMPASSION - AN EXHIBITION OF ARTISTS’ BOOKS features the works of 27 leading Queensland and interstate artists.

All artists’ books will be offered for sale, and there will also be a artisan’s shop within the gallery selling smaller pieces. Several artists will be running workshops and giving talks on different aspects of artists’ books. The Compassion exhibition has been...
