Small town’s creative soul

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

MEM­BERS of the Mt Perry Fine Art Group have been en­joy­ing a busy year.

Mt Perry may be a small town but the art group has about 30 mem­bers and vol­un­teers.

In March the ex­hi­bi­tion Creative Col­lec­tion was launched.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is a col­lec­tion of art­works show­cas­ing the di­verse tal­ents and ad­ven­tur­ous spir­its of the group’s mem­bers.

The group works in all me­dia and styles of art and craft. Its sup­port­ive ap­proach en­cour­ages mem­bers to jump into the un­known and try new art prac­tices.

Af­ter about 20 years, the Mt Perry Fine Arts Group con­tin­ues to be a vi­brant part of the com­mu­nity. It holds at least four art work­shops each the year, hosts the re­gion­ally recog­nised An­nual Art Ex­hi­bi­tion each Septem­ber and man­ages the Mt Perry Fine Arts Gallery, with more than 100 exhibitions to date.

At the Creative Col­lec­tion ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing, Cr John Bowen pre­sented pres­i­dent Shel­ley Kelly with a cheque for $1500, on be­half of the North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil, as on­go­ing sup­port by the coun­cil for arts across the shire.
