The vision for the Art of the Ashes project is to create public artworks influenced by locals in the areas of our region recently affected by bushfires:
- Baffle Creek
- Rules Beach
- Mount Maria
- Mount Larcom
Local artist Jen Hollstein was selected as the artist for this project and hosted a series of collaborative workshops across the regional community, giving residents the opportunity to share stories and create designs that illustrate their relationship with Country and culture.
This information was gathered to form public artworks which will be used and displayed in multiple ways around the region, empowering each community with their own visual representation of identity which will, in turn, increase the resilience of each community and offer an enriched context when it comes to tourism.
The project is now complete. View the artwork and read the unique stories behind each piece on the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum website.
