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.

There will be var­i­ous artists from the Bund­aberg re­gion dis­play­ing their paint­ings, pot­tery, painted denim clothes and jew­ellery, which are in a va­ri­ety of styles, me­dia and sizes.

This is a great op­por­tu­nity to sup­port your lo­cal artists, so why not bring a friend or two and have a day out.

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone the gallery on 4157 2154.
