Friends show their works
GIN GIN Courthouse Gallery presents the Monto Art Group for the first time with their exhibit Artist Friends.
They chose the title simply because it explains who they are – artists and friends.
The art group has been going for many years and has two life members, who were there at the formation of the group.
Over the years the art group members have held exhibitions in Monto, Mulgildie, Biloela and Mt Perry.
They are now the stewards for the art section at the local Monto Show in April, and most of the members support the art section each year with their paintings.
Many of their members have been away to workshops in Mulgildie, Kenilworth, Maryborough and Mt Perry.
They have held workshops in Monto, bringing in tutors from far and near to encourage and promote the group’s artistic skills, and also have encouraged outside artists to have exhibitions in Monto at the Cultural Centre.
Entry to the exhibition is free.
