Childers Art Space on show this month
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.
