Childers artists hon­oured

Isis Town and Country - - Life - By ED­WINA KELLY

THE Gin Gin Court­house Gallery is proud to present, for the first time, the Monto Art Group’s ex­hi­bi­tion, Artist Friends.

This name has been cho­sen be­cause it ex­plains who they are – artists and friends.

The Monto Art Group has been in ex­is­tence for many years and has two life mem­bers who were there at the for­ma­tion of the group.

Dur­ing the years the group has held ex­hi­bi­tions in Monto, Mulgildie, Biloela and Mt Perry and are also ste­wards for the art sec­tion at the Monto Show in April.

The artists are ex­cited about their op­por­tu­nity to ex­hibit at the Gin Gin Court­house Gallery and they hope it will pro­vide art lovers an op­por­tu­nity to see what the artists of Monto have to of­fer.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open un­til Thurs­day, May 21.

FOUR young women are the cre­ators of two new ex­hi­bi­tions at the Her­vey Bay Re­gional Gallery, and all share more than just a love of the cre­ative arts.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, Source, of­fers a fun mix of vi­brant 2D sculp­tural works by Cassie O’Brien and Leigh West and urges you to en­gage all of your senses and connect with na­ture.

Art­works are emo­tive, en­gag­ing, orig­i­nal, ac­ces­si­ble and for all bud­gets.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til May 3.

Suzie Lewis and Ha­ley Ge­orge proudly present the ex­hi­bi­tion Ves­sel.

The artists said: “Life is not about the des­ti­na­tion, it’s about the jour­ney. Our dreams begin at such a young age and we be­lieve that there is more to be­ing alive than just who we are and what we do.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til May 10.
