My mum is a member of a fantastic group of artists in the Maleny area. A few weeks ago, they opened the Pop Up Gallery. The twelve artists (nine painters and three 3D artists) came together in the old Pump House building, with an interest to bring more art to the town and also to revitalise empty buildings which are waiting to be leased.
The opening night was a huge success. The quality of the work is amazing. And I am not just saying that 'cos my mum is involved! All pieces are curated and juried by the group and they present a professional, varied, beautiful body of work.
They have been so successful at revitalising that old building, that it has ow been leased.
They will be there 'til the end of the month, so if you are in the Maleny area, pop into the Pop Up! It's at 23 Bunya St, Maleny.
Hopefully they then will be looking to fill another empty shopfront in town. Isn't that a brilliant idea? Like a moving gallery.
I am so proud of my mum.
