Cher­bourg’s cre­ativ­ity

Ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases pot­tery art

Isis Town and Country - - News -

CHILDERS Arts Space is proudly host­ing a dis­play from the Cher­bourg, Baram­bah, Art, Craft Ex­hi­bi­tion.

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

For roughly 15 years, 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, this ex­hi­bi­tion will in­clude framed archival images to as­sist in telling the Baram­bah Pot­tery story and its place in Cher­bourg’s cre­ative her­itage.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til July 10.

The Story of Anne Frank is the lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion to ar­rive at Bund­aberg Re­gional Art Gallery (BRAG).

The ex­hi­bi­tion has been tour­ing Aus­tralia draw­ing record crowds and will be at BRAG un­til Au­gust 21.

The ex­hi­bi­tion tells the story of Anne Frank.

It show­cases the young Jewish girl's life and death in Nazi-oc­cu­pied Europe dur­ing the Sec­ond World War, as told through her fa­mous diaries.

From the age of 13, Anne Frank doc­u­mented two years of hid­ing from the Nazis, in a small an­nex in Am­s­ter­dam with seven other peo­ple.

The group was be­trayed, cap­tured and sent to con­cen­tra­tion camps. Anne and her sis­ter Mar­got died in Ber­gen-Belsen.

Her fa­mous diaries were later pub­lished.

One and a half mil­lion Jewish chil­dren were killed dur­ing the war.

The ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures a re­pro­duc­tion of the orig­i­nal di­ary, pho­to­graphs of Anne's young life, and other me­men­tos.

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.

Mr Wood­field does not use any brushes to do his art­work, he uses im­ple­ments from na­ture such as bark and pine quills.

Mr Wood­field’s work is on show un­til July 20.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion and to view the dis­play, phone the Gin Gin Court­house Gallery on 4157 2154 for open­ing hours.
