Childers Art Space on show this month

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THERE are still a few days left to visit the Childers Arts Space to view Cen­tre­fold, fea­tur­ing the art­work of lo­cal artists Kym Con­nell and Alice McLaugh­lin.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is a re­sult of the two artists’ trip to Cen­tral Aus­tralia and high­lights the earthy colours found in the Out­back.

CHILDERS Arts Space is proud to present Cher­bourg Baram­bah Art and Craft Ex­hi­bi­tion.

This ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures pot­tery from the Ra­tion Shed Mu­seum, Cher­bourg.

Baram­bah Pot­tery was an im­por­tant creative and eco­nomic en­ter­prise in Cher­bourg, em­ploy­ing pot­ter-artists and dec­o­ra­tors, un­til it was abruptly closed down in 1985.

As well as show­cas­ing orig­i­nal Baram­bah pot­tery ob­jects, the ex­hi­bi­tion will in­clude framed archival images to as­sist in telling the Baram­bah Pot­tery story and its place in Cher­bourg’s creative her­itage.

The open­ing at CHARTS to­mor­row at 5.30pm. This is a free event and no book­ings are re­quired. Ev­ery­one is wel­come and com­pli­men­tary drinks and light re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til July 10.

THE Childers Art Coun­cil Vis­ual Arts Group An­nual Art Camp was held at the River­side Re­treat. The event at­tracted mem­bers and to­gether they en­joy a week of un­in­ter­rupted art in pic­turesque sur­round­ings.

This year’s theme was “Re­cy­cle”, and artists held an ex­hi­bi­tion of their work com­pleted dur­ing the week.

These art­works will form part of an ex­hi­bi­tion to be held later on in the year.

THE Gin Gin Court­house Gallery proudly presents Be­yond our Call­ing by Gin Gin artist Gary Wood­field.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures a col­lec­tion of wildlife in their nat­u­ral habi­tats per­form­ing their nat­u­ral day-to-day tasks. Gary does not use any brushes to do his art­work, but uses im­ple­ments from na­ture such as bark and pine quills along with skew­ers, sponges and cot­ton buds to give the look and tex­tures he is fa­mous for.

The com­mu­nity is in­vited to come to the gallery to see his amaz­ing col­lec­tion and while you are there, have a look at the gift shop, filled with lo­cally made hand crafts.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs from June 11 to July 20. For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion, phone 4157 2154.
