Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

A GROUP of artists bases it­self in the small ru­ral com­mu­nity of Monto.

The six ladies are the stew­ards for the Monto Show Art com­pe­ti­tion, with more than 60 en­trants in this year’s show.

The Gin Gin Court­house Gallery is pleased to present Artists Friends fea­tur­ing the art­work from the Monto Art Group.

This ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tures paint­ings de­pict­ing lo­cal scenes, seascapes, wildlife and land­scapes and com­prises a col­lec­tion of 43 paint­ings in a va­ri­ety of me­dia in­clud­ing wa­ter­colours, pas­tels, oil, acrylic and mixed me­dia.

Gin Gin Re­gional Court­house Gallery di­rec­tor Joanne Wright said the artists from Monto show­cased their work ev­ery two years.

“Their work is very im­pres­sive and the gallery is proud to host tal­ented artists.

“We have plenty of art on dis­play in the gallery gift shop, all by lo­cal artists,” Mrs Wright said.

A small in­ti­mate crowd strolled through the ex­hi­bi­tion open­ing, proud to see their work­ing hang­ing on the walls of the gallery.

The art group mem­bers are care­tak­ers for the Monto Cul­tural Cen­tre and hold ex­hi­bi­tions in the gallery.

The Artists Friends ex­hi­bi­tion is open to the pub­lic and they en­cour­age vis­i­tors to Gin Gin to visit the dis­play.

The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til Oc­to­ber 12. For fur­ther de­tails con­tact the gallery on 4157 2154.
