Redcliffe Art Gallery

Artists mingled easily with appreciative guests at opening night of Ocean Connection, an exhibition of glass art on display at Redcliffe City Art Gallery.

The exhibition, featuring works by Joanna Bone, Scott Coleman, Keith Rowe and Kayo Yokoyama, shows how different techniques applied to the same medium can produce wildly diverse artworks.

Joanna (Jo) Bone happily shared the secrets of her cut cane surface technique with the crowd gathered around her work titled Seed.

Jo moved to Australia from England in 2002 and says she has fallen in love with our reef and marine life.
She says she sees patterns everywhere, from kelp and sea grass to spiders’ bottoms, and is inspired by nature when creating her unique glass pieces.

Ocean Connection is on display at Redcliffe City Art Gallery until March 5.
