Art and evo­lu­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

LITH­O­GRAPHS de­pict­ing Charles Dar­win’s the­ory of evo­lu­tion will be un­veiled at Gayn­dah Art Gallery this Fri­day night.

The lith­o­graphs were gifted to Gayn­dah by Bel­gian city Zon­hoven, on the 20th an­niver­sary of the sis­ter city agree­ment be­tween to the two towns.

Gayn­dah Art Gallery rep­re­sen­ta­tive Arthur Mar­shall said the lith­o­graphs were cre­ated by Zon­hoven Has­selt Fine Arts Academy stu­dents and were a tongue-in-cheek look at Dar­win’s the­ory of evo­lu­tion.

“Even­tu­ally we had the 25th sis­ter city an­niver­sary at the gallery (in 2014), and we de­cided to frame the lith­o­graphs,” Mr Mar­shall said.

“We ap­proached the Ma­sonic Lodge to fund the fram­ing of the lith­o­graphs, which cost $1200, and the Gayn­dah Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion to fund the hang­ing equip­ment worth $500.”

The 12 frames of lith­o­graphs, grouped by theme, will be un­veiled at Gayn­dah Art Gallery on Fri­day, May 1, at 7pm.
