GET ready for a big Saturday of events here in Ipswich.
What a day it will be with so much happening in the arts and culture.
There is an opening at Ipswich Art Gallery where Kate Douglas, an Ipswich-based visual artist, will be showcasing her latest artworks in an exhibition titled ‘Remnants Of The Past’.
Kate’s paintings depict the local built and natural environments, blending visual and symbolic elements in compelling compositions.
Her artworks transport us to another time, capturing the emotions and stories embedded in historical relics, connecting us to the past.
Each artwork tells an imaginary slice of life, offering a visual tale without words. Kate’s previous exhibition, “Entanglement,” showcasing the Bremer River, received rave reviews, with many artworks finding new homes.
Everyone is invited to attend the opening on July 15 at 3pm. Numbers are limited so you must RSVP via the Ipswich Art Gallery website.
One Act Plays
A birthday celebration is being held on the Saturday with the Ipswich Little Theatre’s 50 years of Young Theatricals.
To celebrate this event ILT will be commencing their Young Theatricals one-act play season.
The first play will be “We’re All Mad Here” where three people accept an invitation to take part in an experiment.
As it progresses, we see the drive that makes each human want to possess more than his neighbours – a drive that causes hatred and starts wars.
The second play will be ‘Mmmbeth’ by Allison Williams.
A hilarious gender-bending take on the Scottish play.
Tickets are on sale now for this thought provoking and hilarious one act plays by these talented young thespians.
The production will be held at the historic Walter Burley Griffin Incinerator Theatre which is located at 15 Burley Griffin Drive, Ipswich.
