Art lovers celebrate
CONGRATULATIONS to Robyn Houschildt, from the Childers Arts Council Visual Arts Group, on winning the People’s Choice award at the recent Black and White exhibition held at Childers Arts Space.
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.
Members have created 80 ruby red pot-shaped name badges for convention delegates for the association’s 40th anniversary convention.
The event will be held at the Childers Cultural Centre from October 16 to 19.
