A mosaic of true beauty
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.”
