mask 510s... it's not what you are expecting


comprises more than forty astonishing face masks made by BRAG members, with a huge variety of media represented. Most are for sale and all offer a different perspective and theme. The participants’ obsessions and life experiences are exposed... but what lies beneath the mask?

OPENING NIGHT Friday, 28th October
OPEN Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October, 10am – 5pm, including QPRC Art Trail day, 30th October.

Opening night includes a living parade of some of the masks and promises to be truly different!


is a portrait exhibition by three of BRAG’s member artists:

Glenda Fell Jones’ award-winning classic oil portraits offer her perspective on some well-known Australians... however, in this small retrospective covering several decades, the subjects are some often not seen in portrait exhibitions, even though they form the backbone of Australia - women and indigenous people.

Frank Lindner’s intense, hyper-real photographs invite you on a journey into other peoples’ lives. This series is set in the everyday: local places and people. The subjects are startlingly exposed but in many ways unrecognisable amidst the paraphernalia of their lives, and the presence of a small visitor...

Monde Monde’s collages offer an often-poignant commentary on our world. His interest in the way our adult selves have been shaped by our childhood experience is explored in these diptychs - portraits of adults with their childhood toys... Sometimes our child-self will peep into our adult lives, and our childhood experiences help us shape the mask we carry to protect ourselves as grown-ups.
