New ex­hi­bi­tion finds beauty ev­ery­where

Isis Town and Country - - News -

EARTHY, ab­stract land­scapes are com­ing to Gin Gin with a new ex­hi­bi­tion at the Court­house Gallery.

Nam­bour artist June McCot­ter is bring­ing her In­fi­nite Rhythm col­lec­tion with the mes­sage that “beauty is ev­ery­where”.

“As an artist we in­ter­pret beauty, whether it is found in the grace of a fall­ing leaf, the burnt edges of a flower, a kalei­do­scope of cloud for­ma­tions,” she said.

“Our work is both a phys­i­cal man­i­fes­ta­tion of our ex­pe­ri­ences found in na­ture and the spir­i­tual guid­ance therein.

“Ev­ery jour­ney, re­la­tion­ship, and ex­pe­ri­ence has sculpted our na­ture and pro­vided a plethora of in­spi­ra­tion for each artist’s work.

“As each piece is cre­ated, this in­vis­i­ble thread cre­ates a life-quilt, the work be­comes a re­flec­tion of their own odyssey and an or­a­cle through which the ob­server may glimpse their own pil­grim­age.”

The ex­hi­bi­tion opens Oc­to­ber 15.

For de­tails call the Gin Gin Re­gional Court­house Gallery on 4157 2154. BUND­ABERG Re­gional Coun­cil is seek­ing com­ments on the fu­ture man­age­ment of 17ha of bush­land on the out­skirts of Gin Gin (Lot 185 BON990).

It is pro­posed to be named the “Gin Gin Na­ture Park” and be used pri­mar­ily for con­ser­va­tion and pro­tec­tion of na­tive veg­e­ta­tion and wildlife, and pro­moted for bush­walk­ing, bird­watch­ing and other na­ture based re­cre­ation.

With “a flow­ing creek, rare veg­e­ta­tion in­clud­ing 300-year-old trees and wildlife such as platy­pus and na­tive birds... coun­cil be­lieves this will be­come very pop­u­lar with lo­cal res­i­dents and visi­tors to Gin Gin,” Cr Bill Trevor said.

More in­for­ma­tion will be avail­able at public meet­ings on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 13 at the Gin Gin Youth Cen­tre, near the tennis courts.
