The new exhibition at @statelibraryqld is excellent! There’s no place like home. And there’s no sense of nostalgia quite like the one we feel when we see a photograph of a home — our house, the house of someone close to us, the house where we spent our formative years. HOME: A SUBURBAN OBSESSION exposes the social and emotional power of house and home, and the myriad connections between where we live and who we are. THE CORLEY STORY: Home explores the social and emotional foundations of our houses through the incredible legacy of Frank and Eunice Corley.
From the 1960s to the 1970s, this entrepreneurial couple drove the suburban streets of Queensland in their pink Cadillac, taking photographs of houses and selling them to homeowners as calendar inserts, Christmas cards or standalone images. #slqHome #slq #statelibraryqld #statelibraryqueensland #statelibraryofqueensland #pineappleglam #brisbanehistory #queenslandhistory #qldhistory #library #libraries #librariesofinstagram #libraryofinstagram

My goal for the upcoming holidays is to visit two exhibitions at the Queensland Cultural Centre. 
The first is the wonderful ‘Home: A Surburban Obsession’. 🏡 @statelibraryqld.
During the 60’s &70’s, Frank Corley and his wife roamed the surburbs, taking photos of Queensland houses. His collection was bequeathed to the State Library upon his death. There are over 60,000 images in the collection and I am really looking forward to seeing if I can locate some of my childhood homes! (Yes, we moved quite a few times).
The second is the always outstanding ‘Asia-Pacific Triennial’ at @qagoma, which is now in its 9th year.
🎄
In the meantime, it is head down, tail up as we complete all our custom orders before Christmas!! S x

Who have been mentioned by it's community? Meee! ❣️
Thank you @brisstyle 🤗

Find me tomorrow for a great and last market of the year!
This Saturday, the outside part of the State Library (outdoor and covered part) will be full of opportunities for you to find the perfect gift for the perfect person and to spoil yourself, don't forget that 😉🎁 My suggestions for this time :
- I guess it will be hot again so sunscreen, glasses, umbrella... As long as you don't carry all your house 👓☔ 😂
Keep light. I will be inside so relax there will be some fresh areas 👌
- take your time and try to enjoy the displays of marketers and our presence, we work a lot on them so that's always a pleasure when you notice our work for details. Thank you for last week 😘🎄😉
- never hesitate to ask questions, for me your interest and these questions are what makes me improve! I really care about your preferences,
- let be guided by the atmosphere and the love all the local designers put in their designs 💞 I don't know about you but as a customer, I always come back home full of inspiration when I visit a handmade market. I hope you will feel the same. 
If I were you, I would visit

Helm.

These chips of shell inspired me the sea, the aventurine inspired me travel and the rounded bead, the helm.
And I learned a new word in English, Helm is so soft compare to the French one!

You can see in them something Christmassy, do you? 🙄

They will wait for your attention

Freedôme.

Did you know you could meet me and my pretties again this week?
I will be with Freedôme and friends this Saturday at State Library from 10am to 4pm. Christmas is still coming 🎄✨ Freedôme got their name thanks to few visitors who came to one of my exhibition. This pair was ready but didn't get a name. Moon was the one who suggested this name. Kimiko, Ingrid and Anne agreed!
A beautiful team work ❤️ And why Freedôme?
Because you are free to wear them the way you want. These three pictures are from only one pair.
To be fair the original name was Freedom and the finding was different but I recently felt in love with this losange so I changed Freedom to Freedôme.

I hope you like them. If yes let me know in comment and grab them Saturday 😉. . . . . .

🇩🇰👇 Sweet, sweet shade!

When I took this it was 37C. I was sooo thankful for the shade along the river here. So thankyou State Library!
// Skyggen var meget køler på min cykel langs Brisbane floden. Solen skinner var super varme og det var ikke fin. Luften var også varme og fugtid.  YUCK!

There are so many beautiful walking paths in Brisbane. I love this one at the back of the State Library along the river..great view of the city and love how rather that chopping branches they support their growth

We’ve been working on the Award trophies for the past couple of months and it was fantastic to see them presented to the winners of the various categories. We’d like to say “Congratulations!” to all the winners and shortlisted authors and finally share some photos with you! 😊

We were playing with the train today at the state library and then Miss S decided that she wanted to make a train so we went and made one and then played again.

This dishevelled little owl was oh-so-close to finishing a section of her novel EXCEPT for the fact that her last few paragraphs were hiding somewhere between her imagination and the page and they wouldn’t (in the least bit) come out. And so she left the hush of the John Oxley Library for the bustle of the State Library Cafe where the waitress-with-the-Carolina accent appeared (just like magic.) “This is for you!” (said the waitress.) She put a coffee-with-a-heart-in-it on the table. “Next time, it’ll be...” (she did a little dance “...like THIS!” (And she drew a sweeping heart-in-the-air with her hands.) The dishevelled little owl smiled (at the waitress-with-the-Carolina-accent) and sipped. After that (when all her sipping was done) there was a rustling as all the little owl’s paragraphs left their hiding places and declared their positions precisely. The little owl used her feathers like fingers and captured them all. She sorted. She picked and placed. Then she fixed them all in a row. #owl #thelittleowl #coffee #crema #coffeeheart #writingprompts #writing #statelibrary #statelibraryqld #waitress #statelibraryofqueensland #cafe #magictricks

The building here is the State Library of Queensland. It is very close to the Kurilpa Bridge, which was opened to pedestrians and cyclists in 2009. The bridge connects Kurilpa Point in South Brisbane’s cultural precinct to Tank
Street in the CBD.

I ask myself all the time, how can I create a meaningful life?  I believe it starts with what I am doing for myself first.  I need to help myself have a good life and then that can ripple outward, what am I doing to help my family, then what am I doing in my community? ✴
It doesn't need to be anything big to make a difference, you are already valuable as a person without even lifting a finger, but when you do act you have increadible power to impact life for the better.  Think about what you do that you are passionate about and love to do and keep doing it because the world needs more of that, more passion and vibrancy and because it makes you happy.
✴
There will be times that life will be hard and dark and painful, that's why it's important to do things that are meaningful and not just necessary.  It's the meaning that will get us through the dark times.
✴
I really believe that it is meaning that keeps us passionate and passion that allows us to be a change for the better in the world.  So do something each day for yourself, it's not selfish it's nurturing, it's changing the world.

Watercolour by #AudreyGibbs " The Monkey House, Dubbo Zoo" 1994 for sale for $495. 15 by 20cm in size this painting is well mounted and framed and ready for hanging as are the other two Gibbs paintings we have for sale. #earlyqueenslandartist #QAG #queenslandartgallery #quuenslandmuseum #uqartmuseum #qutartmuseum #statelibraryqld #museumofbrisbane #commercialroadantiques
Another #AudreyGibbs work we are pleased to be selling this gouache of " Three girls on a merry-go-round" is 20 by 20cm square and is $550. #earlyqueenslandartist #qag #quenslandarfgallery #uqartmuseum #qutartmuseum #qldmuseum #statelibraryqld #museumofbrisbane #commercialroadantiques
Born in Maryborough in 1921 and educated to matriculation standard at Rockhampton Girls Grammar School, #AudreyGibbs (1921-2015)  loved drawing from an early age and received private tutoring during her school years.

In her late teens she worked in a commercial art studio in Brisbane. She married soon after World War II and produced and reared six children. Her husband was a doctor who became a Federal Member of Parliament.

When her fifth child was two, Audrey’s husband encouraged her to again take up her art, and it was her first encounter with oil painting when she attended life classes with #MelvilleHaysom at the Brisbane Central Technical College once a week for a year.

In 1978 she studied drawing and water colours at Seven Hills College of Art. She joined the Pastel Society in 1980, and in 1983 the #RoyalQueenslandArtSociety and the #HalfDozenGroupofArtists . She held solo exhibitions at the Ardrossan Gallery in 1986 and 1988, at the Riverhouse Gallery in 1993 and 1995, and at the Gladstone Art Gallery and the RQAS in 1998. She was a finalist in the NSW Wynne Prize for landscape in 1990 and 1991. In later years she exhibited in her Chelmer home with her paintings dotted lovingly around her living room, adding to the charm and appeal of each work. Most of these shows were sell outs. In 2003 she was made a fellow of the RQAS. In 2009 there was a major retrospective of her work from the 1960s to the 2000s. Her favourite subjects expressed the joy of youth, life, and the security of the home. Her chief fascination was for figures in interiors, and in any medium.

Gibbs’ work is held in private collections around Australia and the US, and in public collections such as the Gladstone Art Gallery and the RQAS. This watercolour "Girl with Fan" was painted in about 1995 and is 27 by 21cm and beautifully framed. It is one of three works by Audrey we are delighted to be selling on behalf of a client and is $600.

The girls asked for a trip out to do arts and crafts so that's what we did. We went to the state library (becoming a new fave of mine) before going to GOMA (gallery of modern art). The girls had a great day! #artsandcrafts #schoolholidays #statelibraryqld #gomaqld #tripout #art
🚉 We had a BIG morning this morning and went into town to visit friends and check out the State Library. They have an amazing interactive kids space! This little one was fast asleep as soon as we got on the train home 😴

Sometimes we get just one go at digitising a collection item. These newspapers are so fragile, that they can shatter as the page is turned. This means we need to be extra careful with our care and handling of these precious items #slqconservation #handsatwork #statelibraryqld #caringforcollections #behindthescenes
Did you know we still use 35mm film and a darkroom to reformat some collection items? Even in this digital world, microfilm is sometimes the preferred option to preserve collection content.

More from Jen's Japanese paper conservation learnings. She writes: "Round blades are personal, according to the size of each person's hand. Seen by the way we hold the knife while cutting feather thin Japanese tissue.  The blades and handles are hand crafted and personalised with the makers mark. Imagine sharpening this knife every day for the finest cut!" #slqconservation #paperconservation #alwayslearning #handsatwork #statelibraryqld

Brisbane Writers Festival has wrapped up for another year and I showed exceptional self-restraint by only buying one book 😂 This is only the fifth book I've bought this year, with my New Year's resolution being to make a dent in my enormous 'to read' pile before purchasing more. It was wonderful to see so many different people come through the Festival, from long-term supporters to walk-ups from out of town. Hope everyone enjoyed and were challenged/moved/affirmed by the sessions they attended - I had a fabulous time as a volunteer! See ya next year 👋📚.

Charles Henry Lancaster (1886-1959) was born in Melbourne where he studied under #FrederickMcCubbin at the #NationalGallerySchool before coming to Queensland in 1914 when he first exhibited with the QAS. His early career was in stained glass and he exhibited designs for windows in the Society’s Annual Exhibition in 1916. He managed the stained glass department of RS Exton & Co for many years when #WilliamBustard was the chief designer and gave several lectures on its production to the QAS. A key figure in the #RoyalQueenslandArtSociety from 1915 to 1952, he was its President from 1925 to 1927 and from 1934 to 1935, and Vice President on many occasions. He was also a member of the #RoyalArtSocietyNSW and is known to have exhibited there at least in 1924 and 1926. He was a trustee of the QAG from 1939 until his death 20 years later.
Lancaster was awarded the RQAS Jubilee Medal and the King George VI Coronation Medal in 1937, and a British Empire Medal for his contribution to the #BritishEmpireExhibition1938 in Glasgow. In 1939 Lancaster, Bustard, #StanhopeHobday and #MelvilleHaysom were each commissioned to paint a mural for the new development of Tattersall’s Club, Brisbane.
As an exhibiting artist, Lancaster was one of the Society’s stalwarts, contributing to its Annual Exhibitions for more than 40 years, and he held other joint and solo exhibitions. He was included in the 1951 “Exhibition of Queensland Art” at the QAG, and the exhibitions of “Queensland Artists of Fame and Promise” in 1952 and from 1957 to 1959.
Lancaster’s work was traditionally based and focussed on the landscape of Brisbane and its outer suburbs, but he occasionally travelled to the Southport area in his search for more suitable subjects. His rural landscapes were said to manifest a “quiet toned mellow serenity”, but his paintings of the city had a quiet modernist edge. He is represented in the #QueenslandArtGallery, the #UQArtMuseum, the #QUTArtMuseum and the #ToowoombaArtGallery This unsigned oil of the Brisbane River is 31 x 39cm and is $850.

State Library Conservator Jennifer is headed to Japan to attend the International Course on Conservation of Japanese Paper, in Tokyo. She was one of ten successful applicants worldwide to be invited to attend in 2018. This area is of particular interest to paper conservators, as we use many Japanese tools, brushes, materials and techniques in our conservation practice. 
Jennifer grew up in the Unites States and has undertaken conservation training in Hawaii, South Korea, and Melbourne. She now makes Brisbane home. 
With the final week theme of #qmm2018 being ‘grow’, we are wishing Jennifer well on her professional development trip to Japan.

Swipe across to see how we use Japanese paper and brushes for State Library exhibitions:

We will do our best to share some photos about Jennifer's Japanese paper learnings over the coming weeks.

Lilian Pedersen (1898-1983) was born in Leicester, England, where she designed for fabric printers in Lancashire. After arriving in Brisbane in 1936, she studied art and pottery at the Brisbane Central Technical College under #FJMartynRoberts and #LJHarvey. Her subsequent creative activities were a mixture of art and craft in the 1940s, were then dominated by painting in the 1950s, before returning predominantly to craft in the 1960s and 1970s.

Pedersen’s significance for Queensland art does not lie simply in the artwork she created. She also promoted the annual exhibitions of the #HalfDozenGroupofArtists, and in 1951 established the LJ Harvey Memorial Prize for Drawing at the QAG. In 1975 she endowed the Andrew and Lilian Pedersen Memorial Prizes for Printmaking, Small Sculpture and Drawing at the QAG. She is represented in the NGA, Technical College (now QUT Art Museum) and the UQ Art Museum. This well-framed still life watercolour is signed “E Lilian Pedersen 1952” and is in good condition. 28 x 38 cm and the frame 51 x 61 cm, it is for sale for $600. #lilianpedersen #earlyqueenslandartist #queenslandartgallery #uqartmuseum #qldmuseum #statelibraryqld #qutartmuseum #museumofbrisbane #australianwatercolour #australianpainting #australianart #museumofbrisbane
