Jane Burton MacFarlane’s House #1 2010 | Pigment print, 43 x 43cm. Ipswich Art Gallery Collection, commissioned 2010

This selection of ‘house portraits’ examines the city’s significant domestic architectural heritage as seen through the eyes of contemporary Queensland artists.

These house portraits are more than mere pictorial representations of the city’s heritage-listed buildings, instead offering explorations into the architectural design, construction and fabrication methods while also exposing more than a hint of the personal histories and memories of their former residents.

Let there be light!

Step out of the darkness and into this hands-on, interactive exhibition where visitors can play with light.

Can you sneak past a laser light security block? Why not step inside a giant kaleidoscope! You can even “draw” with infrared “paint”, or make your own powerful telescope!

Playing with Light explores our big bright world and the many ways in which science and physics create light!
