Exhibition showcases pottery art
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.
