Lyn Laver-Ahmat: Light on Landscape
Foundation Gallery, Artspace Mackay
5 December - 14 February
Mackay artist and art educator Lyn Laver-Ahmat has established her practice over decades, responding to emotional connections to nature and place. Light on Landscape includes recent works exploring a palette of gentle colours and impressions of space and form, inspired by travels to outback Queensland and more familiar scenes closer to home.

FIELD Engineers Gallery, Artspace Mackay
11 December - 14 February
Systematic is a blend of playful, vibrant and kinetic works that invite viewers to reflect on their own relationship to contemporary systems; the interdependency between the part and the whole; and the creative potential of systemic productivity and failure. It showcases eight Australian artists whose works constitute self-contained, interactive systems in their own right, or engage with systems principles at conceptual and material levels.
