Hanging in the library entrance space each month

Dec / Jan - Richard Curtis

Feb Ruth Daggs

Mar - George Hollingshed & Janet Polson

George Hollingshed’s interest in fused glass began 2001 when he attended a course at the University of Southern Queensland. Following this he bought a kiln to begin creating individual pieces.

George completed a Certificate 1V in Visual Arts in 2007. He has made and sold large sculptures incorporating fused glass with wood and steel and has exhibited in North Queensland as well as the New England area of NSW. His works have been purchased by both Australian and overseas collectors. He loves the mystery of what each firing will bring and believes that art, humour and happiness go hand in hand. He hopes that the functional and whimsical pieces will be used and enjoyed equally.
