Striking images of native wildlife and intriguing art prints will feature in a new series of exhibitions curated by the Logan Art Gallery.

Due to maintenance work at the gallery, this year’s first round will include three exhibitions presented as pop-up exhibits at the Logan West Community Center in Hillcrest.

They are from Friday May 6 to Saturday June 11.

The community center at 2 Wineglass Drive will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday during this time.

Pop-up exhibitions begin with the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society Inc holding its biennial exhibition of Australian and international wildlife paintings, pastel drawings and sculptures.

The society promotes Australia’s unique wildlife species through their works. They also raise funds for conservation projects.

The second exhibition, by artist Kuraby Lien Jansen, will feature illustrations and texts from his new children’s book The bright moon.

The book follows young dragon Lila and her loving parents as she uses her strong connection to the moon to show him the way home.

The third exhibition, changed states, is hosted by the Migaloo Press Artist Collective in Queensland and members of Firestation Print Studio in Victoria.

Each artist makes two prints and one remains unchanged.

The second print is swapped with an artist from the other studio and modified to create a new print.

During the exhibitions, members of the Queensland Wildlife Artists Society and artists from the Migaloo Press Artist Collective will present art demonstrations in the space on selected days.

The three exhibitions will be inaugurated between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday 6 May.
