As indentured labourers in the sugar cane and cotton industries of Queensland and Northern NSW, they were, in effect, slaves.

Nature’s sacredness and immensity is an ongoing emphasis in Anneke’s work. Linked Landscapes does not present quickly captured snapshots or tidy tourist visions. Rather, Linked Landscapes enjoys the landscape in its entirety: the crevices and trickling water of the gorge; dusty rocks and windy shadows of grasslands; silhouetted mountains, rain bearing clouds; and the river’s reflection of submerged tree trunks. With a gentle lyricism, Linked Landscapes speaks of the powerful connectedness of nature.

Iran social realities of hope, temptation, nostalgia and introspection are captured through the Persian lens. Contemporary Persian culture is set against a backdrop of densely populated cityscapes and expansive open spaces where mosque domes dot the horizon. The artists in EY! Iran depict a country and culture that is at times surprisingly familiar to Australians - narratives of family life and suburban sprawl and poignant observations only an Iranian could make on a culture immersed in longstanding customs and traditions. This photographic exhibition deals with issues of identity, gender, urban life, mass culture and social restrictions. The artists capture a side of the Iranian population and its landscape which is at times contrary to the depictions of Iran by Western media.

Anyone for tea? M.A.I.D. 4.T. is an exhibition of tea cosies, selected from The ARTIST World Tea Cosy Championships, initiated by the Miles Regional Daniel Wallwork Arts Council Inc. in partnership with Murilla Shire Council. In M.A.I.D. 4.T the humble tea cosy is elevated from a domestic object to an artform in its own right. In this collection of tea cosies some of the creations have freed their form from the conventional object completely. The exhibition showcases a diverse range of tea cosies, from the traditional knitted and crocheted, to many exciting and contemporary textile art forms. Methods include mosaic, metal work, embroidery, appliqué, patchwork, weaving, quilting and free- form fabric work, while materials are as diverse as dried teabags and aircraft fabrics. Over 400 tea cosy entries from across Australia and as far afield as Ireland, Scotland, Canada, U.S.A., South Africa, England and New Zealand have been featured in The World Tea Cosy Championships since its inception two years ago.
