What's On - Art Exhibitions
The Way We Wore
13 - 27 April
An exhibition of wedding gowns worn by the ladies of the country town of Queanbeyan from the early 1880s and presented by The Queanbeyan and District Historical Museum Society.
Everyone loves a wedding and this exhibition exemplifies the diversity of design, the range of fabrics and the social connections of the folk of the Queanbeyan district. The gowns exhibited are from the Museum's own collection and generous loans by local families. They range from the very simple, to lacy extravagances and the sleekly sophisticated.
3 - 18 May
A showcase of Queanbeyan's many talented craft practitioners and designer makers.
Throughout May 2013 Craft ACT is coordinating Designing a City: Crafting a Nation to showcase craft and design as part of Canberra's centenary celebrations; The Q Exhibition Space is proud to be one of the few satellite venues in this program. The showcase includes glass, ceramics, jewellery, gold and silver, mixed media and textiles.
