Le­mon Quil­ters show ‘pas­sion’

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHEN open­ing the lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion at the Mun­dub­bera Re­gional Art Gallery, Beth John­son de­scribed it as cre­ation which re­flects the “won­der­ful pas­sion” of 18 women who make up the Mun­dub­bera Le­mon Quil­ters.

This is the sec­ond ex­hi­bi­tion of the works of the quil­ters and in­cludes all things fab­ric – quilts, bags, vests, cush­ions and ta­ble run­ners.

Group or­gan­iser Lyn Car­lyon said the women were now ex­cited about learn­ing a new art form in Fe­bru­ary next year if their RADF grant ap­pli­ca­tion proved suc­cess­ful.

“I’ve ap­plied for the grant to bring Lor­raine Karthew to Mun­dub­bera and if it’s suc­cess­ful the Gayn­dah Quil­ters will join us.

“Lor­raine is a textile artist, tu­tor, au­thor and judge who’s trav­elled all over the world.

“She’ll teach us textile paint­ing and we’ll cre­ate an im­pres­sion­ist land­scape us­ing tiny pieces of chopped-up ma­te­rial,” Mrs Car­lyon said.

The quilt­ing ex­hi­bi­tion will be on dis­play at the gallery un­til Christ­mas.
