Kissing frogs, pumpkin coaches and hot men in tights are my first thoughts when I think of the fairy tales I read as a child... Ha! Imagine what the fanciful minds of Brisbane's artistic community will come up with in the latest art exhibition to hit town.
For those wanting to immerse themselves into the world of the creative and the whimsical, Once Upon a Time - Reinterpreting the Fairy Tale opens this Friday night, 16 August from 6pm.
It will be held at one of Brisbane's coolest arts hubs Art & Design Precinct at 10 Bailey Street in West End.
The 10 day exhibition features established and emerging artists returning to the essence of folk histories - exploring oral tales, myths and beliefs behind ancient fairy tales.
It promises to be an exciting exhibition drawing together actors and artists creating works in media such as painting, illustration, sculpture, mixed media, photography, ceramics, jewellery and fibre art. There are also some amazing children's workshops scheduled, which explore the fairy tale genre.
Everyone is welcome to attend the opening night festivities - I'll be donning a pair of my favourite glass slippers to wear on the night!
All opening night bar, raffle and silent auction proceeds will be donated to Make-a-Wish Foundation. There will also be performances, music and a fairy fortune teller to predict your future...
