It was a fabulous opening, which began with a performance of Coalface by Alison Clouston and Boyd.
Quandamooka elder Aunty Joan Hendriks welcomed us to country. And indeed it is very special to launch Bimblebox: art – science – nature in this beautiful and very precious part of Queensland. Thank you Aunty Joan Hendriks. The exhibition Quandamooka Dreaming is also currently on display at the Redland Art Gallery.
