Art right from the heart
Royce Bonisch provides mother’s artwork for exhibition at Mundubbera Art Gallery
THE exhibition called Private Collections is the brainchild of Royce Bonisch who put the suggestion forward so the Mundubbera people would have something to share.
Mr Bonisch said his mother was an artist in her later years and he wanted people to see his inheritance.
“My mum was a woman who followed her heart, after surviving two wars and marrying Dolf Bonisch, she made her home at Auburn Park Station in 1939.” Mr Bonisch said.
“In her twilight years she fulfilled her dream of fine arts.”
Mundubbera Art Gallery director Sue Allan said the idea of people taking painting off the walls in their homes and displaying them may not be for everyone.
“We intend to do this type of exhibition again in the future and everyone is encouraged to come to the gallery and see the exhibits on display now and think about getting involved next time.” Councillor Faye Whelan said the contribution made by Mr Bonisch was one his mother would have approved of.
“The gallery committee is so happy to have Jean Bonisch’s works of art on display for the community to see,” Cr Whelan said.
