General information

Artspace Mackay is the regional art gallery owned and operated by Mackay Regional Council and aims to provide visitors to the region with a taste of our unique environment. The gallery includes three impressive exhibition spaces, cafe, and an artists book reading room which houses a collection of artists books and prints of national significance. This purpose-built gallery, designed by award-winning Queensland architects Cox Rayner, forms part of Mackay Regional Council’s Cultural Precinct. It provides residents and visitors to Mackay with the opportunity to see art exhibitions by significant international, Australian and local artists and touring exhibitions presented by Australia’s largest art galleries and museums. Exhibitions are complemented by innovative education and community activities for all ages. Programs include guided tours, artists’ talks, practical art workshops for adults and children as well as professional development opportunities for local artists, teachers and students. Artspace Mackay is also very proud of its region’s significant and ongoing investment in public art, including works which line the Pioneer River along the Bluewater Trail. Recent commissions have seen Mackay earn a place on the world map for contemporary public art, with six art installations by Indigenous Australian artist Fiona Foley, two installations by established Queensland artist, Donna Marcus and a recognised commitment to commission further works along the trail. Every two years, Artspace Mackay hosts The Libris Awards, an artists book competition open to all Australian artists, which has become nationally respected and develops awareness of the Mackay Regional Council’s significant collection of artists books. The Libris Awards also assists with further development of the collection by facilitating the ongoing acquisition of new works. Today, the Mackay Regional Council Collection is the most focused collection throughout the regional galleries network in Queensland, and contains the third largest collection of artists books in Australia after the National Gallery of Australia and the State Library of Queensland.

📸PORTRAITS WITH BRENDEN📸 Hi everyone, it's Brenden from Crossroad Arts. I would like to invite you all to come along to be interviewed and have your portrait taken by me for my new project called "Portraits with Brenden" which will take place this year. Today I interviewed Traci Lietzke about her work and aspirations. 😎How long have you worked with Crossroad Arts and what type of roles have you had?😎 That's hard! Probably about ten years ago I worked doing marketing and doing projects. I worked with you Brenden in theatre productions and going to Bluecare and then I took a break and came back three years ago to be the secretary of the Board which means I get to do a lot of fun things like volunteering at productions, and coming into all the fun events that happen at Crossroad Arts and now I have stepped down as secretary and I am going to be a regular Board member. 😎What inspirations do you have in life?😎 Artistically I am inspired by nature. But in a lot of the work that I do artistically I think community is the most important thing and I really enjoy sharing skills and getting other people excited about art and involved in art. 😎Have you travelled around the world before and where did you travel to?😎 I was born in the USA. I have travelled to Mexico and Guatemala and a good bit of Europe. I lived in Italy for a couple of years and Ireland for a year and then I met an Australian and decided to move over here. I have been here for 21 years now. Australia is my home now. 😎How do you feel about working with other artists with disability?😎 I think the most exciting projects I have worked on have been with people with disability because they have such great joy for creativity and what they are doing and so much enthusiasm and I think it is really important that ALL people are given the chance to be creative. 😎What type of art making do you like the best?😎 Most of the work that I do is printmaking but I also enjoy making books and I tend to make things that are 3D and move a bit and have movement. I used to like theatre a lot but I haven't done that in a really long time 😎How can we get involved in your artmaking groups?😎 Well, Printbank Mackay is the printmaking group that I am a part of and we meet the second Sunday of every month at the Old Town Hall to have workshops or they can email us. Alison (Crossroad Arts AD/CEO) is also now a part of the group. And also if you are a kid you can come and get involved at Artspace Mackay BMA Kidspace. If you would like to take five with Brenden to chat about your passions and get your portrait taken get in touch with [email protected], call 07 49535122 or via the National Relay Service or pop into the office at 55 Wood St, Mackay. Brenden works on Fridays so get in touch to arrange a time. Image Description: A candid photo of person with short brown hair and a fringe laughing while seated in front of a magenta coloured tinsel backdrop. They are wearing a white dress with a peach coloured flowers and green leaves with blue vines print.
