Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

THE tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion of the pres­ti­gious 2012 Queens­land Re­gional Arts Awards, Es­sen­tial Queens­land, will open at the Mun­dub­bera Re­gional Art Gallery from this Satur­day through to Wed­nes­day, July 10.

Cu­rated by John Wal­dron, the ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures the art work of 30 of the finest emerg­ing and es­tab­lished artists work­ing in re­gional and re­mote Queens­land.

The theme, The Es­sen­tial Char­ac­ter of Queens­land, in­vited artists to re­spond to and ex­plore how the theme re­lated to the lives, the peo­ple and the places of re­gional and re­mote Queens­land.

Mun­dub­bera Re­gional Art Gallery co-or­di­na­tor Roslyn Berthelsen said she was thrilled the ex­hi­bi­tion was able to come.

“This tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion shows re­gional and re­mote artists in their best light,” she said.

“It pro­vides a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for them to show their work to a wider au­di­ence.

“It is also a great op­por­tu­nity for our com­mu­nity to see the work of artists from other com­mu­ni­ties who chose to live and work in the re­gion of Queens­land.”

The Queens­land Re­gional Arts Awards is a hall­mark event pro­duced by Fly­ing Arts, which for more than 40 years has been pro­vid­ing vis­ual arts de­vel­op­ment ser­vices through­out Queens­land.

Ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Fly­ing Arts Stephen Clark said he was pleased the tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion was in Mun­dub­bera.

“The awards en­cour­age par­tic­i­pa­tion and recog­nise ex­cel­lence,” he said.

The of­fi­cial launch of the ex­hi­bi­tion will take place at the Mun­dub­bera Re­gional Art Gallery this Satur­day in Gallery 1 in con­junc­tion with the open­ing of the Mun­dub­bera Kinder­garten Stu­dents Ex­hi­bi­tion in Gallery 2.
