IF YOU have not yet visited CHARTS to view its State of the Art 14 exhibition, now is your chance to come into the gallery to view the amazing art quilts created by the Queensland Quilters Art Quilt Group.
These textile artworks are different to traditional quilts and are a must-see for art lovers.
For those interested in traditional quilts, there is a display of wonderful traditional quilts by Childers quilter June Daniels on display at the Childers Library.
The Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery is holding an art sale until the end of February in which local artists’ work will be on sale at discount prices.
