Her art­work, en­ti­tled Heed the Si­lent Sen­tinel, was unan­i­mously voted the best, with the award gen­er­ously do­nated by Art Plus, Bund­aberg.

Robyn has of­fered to do­nate the art­work to the Childers RSL, where it will take pride of place.

Childers Arts Space was alive with a host of re­cent and older im­mi­grants when its lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion For­eign Land opened on Satur­day, May 16.

Artist Sab­rina Lau­ris­ton, also a re­cent ar­rival to Australia from Italy, was thrilled at the re­sponse to her ex­hi­bi­tion.

Sab­rina’s book For­eign Land was launched dur­ing the open­ing and is avail­able for pur­chase from Childers Arts Space.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til July 19.

Childers Fire­house Pot­ters are hard at work pre­par­ing for an in­flux of pot­ters for the an­nual Wide Bay Bur­nett Pot­ters As­so­ci­a­tion Con­ven­tion in Oc­to­ber.
