On the 28th of March from 12pm-7pm, as part of the annual Brewsvegas Festival Jugglers Art Space is collaborating with Four Pines Brewing Company and Crush City to facilitate a venue wide activation of large scale live painting.
A number of established and emerging local artists have been selected and will be working together in order to transform the Jugglers tunnel and courtyard throughout the event. This will allow for a unique occasion to see the creative process in real time. Some of the artists involved will include Libby Harwood, Jordan Bruce, Erin Smith, Jamie Brown, Bodhi Gardener and Josh Knight. The nature of this event will facilitate the novel opportunity to enjoy a high quality product from Four Pines Brewing whilst chatting to some of the most exciting up-and-coming Brisbane artists about their work.
On top of this there will also be live music over the course of the afternoon, and the main gallery space will be exhibiting a number of original works from a range of established and emerging artists including the likes of Sofles, Shida and Fintan Magee – all of which will be available for sale. All proceeds made from gallery exhibition sales during the event will go toward more creative projects at Jugglers Art Space, therefore supporting emerging artists in the local and wider community.
Saturday will also host the launch of Jugglers’ and Crush City’s loyalty card program. This partnership represents an environmental shift toward more sustainable arts practices at Jugglers Art Space. When you visit the gallery you can obtain a loyalty card, which entitles you to a discount on Ironlak’s new SUGAR aerosol at Crush City.

White Silence is an ongoing group exercise at Jugglers where invited artists collaborate on an interpretive response to a controlled environment of selected music and silence, usually in one of the Jugglers exhibition spaces. This is done without any verbal communication between participants. The idea is borrowed from the mystics across a range of spiritual traditions in an attempt to also create a crucible for possible moments of inexplicable presence, new understandings and epiphany. We encourage the use of these videos for private reflection and contemplation.
Jugglers Art Space is proud to be hosting two free exhibitions in February awarded to six outstanding fine art students at their graduation shows last year as part of an ongoing parternship between Jugglers Art Space Inc & Southbank Tafe.
Capturing the Spirit…
Opening Night Event: Friday 20th February 2015 from 6-9pm
Three award winning visual art graduates from TAFE Queensland, Brisbane, Alex Freitas, Jane McGeough and Felicity Scarce, step out of the nest to present their first exhibition in Brisbane. Bringing together three very different styles and mediums, painting, sculpture and video installation, the works weave a sense of capturing the spirit – of a moment, a person or through a ritual. In abstract drawings and quirky wood sculptures Alex tries to capture simple moments of his life. In bold, fresh and colourful portraits of local Brisbane activists Jane seeks to capture the vision and the spirit of the person. Felicity’s practice is an exploration of and experiment in spirituality, the idea of everyday magic and ritual.
Opening Night Event: Friday 27th February 2015 from 6-9pm
Artists Jordan Harris, Tanya Borg and Michelle Eskola present On Air: An exploration of digital spaces through traditional media, at Jugglers Art Space.
Digital imagery and portable electronic devices have generated an endless drift of visual information. ‘On Air’ responds to the rise of selfies, non-moments and instagram filters through painting, drawing and photography. These online impressions are suspended in real space to find new meanings, perspectives and formations.
Witness the first marks made by members of our nation’s first people on Saturday January 31 and Sunday February 1 at Jugglers Art Space Inc!
Presented in partnership with Creative Inclusive, Indigenous street artist Libby Harward will lead a team of local creatives to christen the new wall rebuilt in Jugglers’ Fortitude Valley courtyard after it was destroyed during the Brisbane superstorm late last year.
Courtyard open to viewing the live art process from 12pm to 5pm, Saturday January 31 and Sunday February 1.
