Artists fired up for pottery
Surely this is the hottest thing in Loganlea right now.
The Logan Artists Association has a new kiln building thanks to a funding grant from the Division 6 Local Infrastructure Program (LIP).
It will enable the kiln firing process to be conducted without the need for more extraction fans, making the process safer and more efficient.
Councillor Tony Hall says demand for pottery classes at the Logan Artists Association was the catalyst for the new building.
‘It’s a very popular art form here and anyone who has visited the gallery or seen an exhibition from here will have seen some high-quality works,’ Cr Hall says.
‘The association has grown from a small collective to a major community hub and the kiln is another step forward for the association.’
LIP funding is designed to address specific local infrastructure needs in each division.
Logan Artists Association President Di Flack says her organisation provides a range of regular classes, short courses, special workshops and social activities to support and encourage the development of artistic skills.
Its headquarters in Coral Street, Loganlea, is also home to the Able Gallery, named after former Councillor for the division, Graham Able.
