What happens when the family arrives from interstate for Christmas? Where's the first place we all head? The decision was unanimous - the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) to take in the 6th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art. Opened in December 2006, the gallery has proved to be an instant winner, encouraging the participation of all members of the public, right down to the youngest of children.
Voted the most popular piece by the children in the family was this incredible deer ...
... closely followed by People Holding Flowers.
Hmmm ... fascinating.
The reclining Buddha captured the children's imagination. Closer inspection showed it was composed entirely of stickers, and our intrepid two-year-old grandson immediately found Postman Pat out of the thousands of images in front of him.
The ultimate Aussie caravan.
These paper mushrooms were stunning in their simplicity.
There was time for a quick drawing session ...
... followed by the tossing of leaves.
The exhibition is a remarkable success, and leaves a smile on everyone's face. So if you happen to be in Brisbane between now and the next couple of months, don't miss it.
A very happy and peaceful Christmas and I hope your new year brings you much joy.
