Region is awash with great talent
THE talent of artists in our region can be taken for granted.
Some people have been here so long they have forgotten, and others are new to the area and don’t realise how many gifted artists we have.
Last week I met a new resident, just moved from Gladstone to Gayndah, and the first thing I recommended was to go to the Gayndah Art Gallery.
Converted from an empty convent into a contemporary art space, it’s a remarkable building (not to mention housing the only elevator in Gayndah).
The museum’s current exhibition features works from Mundubbera artist Sue Lederhose.
Mundubbera Regional Art Gallery has also just opened a new exhibit titled Collectively Gayndah.
It features many of Gayndah’s best talents and it’s great to see the two towns enjoying each other’s artists.
My personal favourite form of art is photography.
And when I asked readers to submit their best sunset photos over Christmas, the response was incredible.
The page of our favourite sunsets in last week’s edition looked amazing.
Considering how many great photographers there are in the Central and North Burnett, we want to continue getting reader submissions.
So the next photography challenge is to find a piece of history, take a creative shot, and send it in.
If you have access to the internet, keep an eye on facebook.com/CentralAndNorthBurnettTimes where I’ll put up an example to kick things off.
