Old be­comes new: Bits and bobs be­come art

THERE is now a thing of beauty adorn­ing the en­trance to the Mun­dub­bera Art Gallery.

The mo­saic, called Mun­dub­bera Gre­vil­lea, de­picts the logo of the gallery it­self.

The work of art was cre­ated by mem­bers of the com­mu­nity dur­ing a mo­saic work­shop.

The work­shop was held at the Mun­dub­bera Mu­seum and the 15 at­ten­dees in­volved were aged be­tween seven and 70.

The value of the work­shop is price­less as the lessons learnt will res­onate through the com­mu­nity for years to come.

“The amaz­ing thing is this mo­saic is made from bro­ken plates, tiles, tea cup han­dles and all things re­cy­cled,” gallery trea­surer Denise Ed­wards said.

“I hope the pub­lic will come and en­joy the gallery as the fa­cil­ity be­longs to the com­mu­nity.”

The gallery is manned by vol­un­teers and is open dur­ing li­brary hours.

“Cur­rent exhibitions are works by Bald­win Swamp artist and Mun­dub­bera Kindy chil­dren,” Ms Ed­wards said.

“The am­biance of the art gallery has at­tracted the eye of many artists in the re­gion and is a stand­alone gem of the North Bur­nett.

“If in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing for this cool and re­lax­ing task, con­tact me or leave your name at the gallery.”
