Works by one of the most talented young artists in City of Logan will be showcased at Logan Art Gallery from next week.

The artworks, which include prints, sculptures, ceramics, paintings and weavings, are part of the first major solo exhibition by Crestmead artist Kyra Mancktelow (Quandamooka, Mardigan, South Sea Islander).

Kyra also designed the stunning mural on the Chester Park water reservoir on Middle Rd at Boronia Heights. Her works, entitled Unsilenced, will be on display at the gallery from June 11 to July 24 – which overlaps with NAIDOC Week from July 4 to 11.

They explain how Kyra and other First Nations people view the world through distinct ways of life such as land, law and ceremony.

This project is supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund, a partnership between the Queensland Government and Logan City Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
