Show­cas­ing June McCot­ter at the Gin Gin Gallery

Isis Town and Country - - NEWS -

THE look of sur­prise, shock and con­fu­sion swept over the face of Coun­cil­lor Honor as he was handed a red sticky dot by artist June McCot­ter at her gallery open­ing in Gin Gin and the crowd was left in sus­pense.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil Cr Wayne Honor opened the lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion the Gin Gin Court­house Gallery last Sat­ur­day af­ter­noon in front of a small group of pas­sion­ate artists and friends.

As a to­ken of her ap­pre­ci­a­tion for his con­tin­ual sup­port of the arts and the com­mu­nity, Cr Honor was given the op­por­tu­nity to take home a works by ac­claimed artist McCot­ter.

Cr Honor ven­tured slowly through the ex­hi­bi­tion and af­ter se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion and of course un­der the watch­ful eye of his wife Judy, de­cided on the pic­ture and placed the sticky dot on the paint­ing.

Cr Honor said it was such a won­der­ful sur­prise and he was very grate­ful.

“This paint­ing takes me to where I am most at home and that’s in the bush, look­ing at this pic­ture re­minds me of be­ing out on a horse with noth­ing but the land,” he said.

“It’s a lovely paint­ing and it seems very fa­mil­iar when I look at it.”

Cr Honor said the re­gion is home to many great artists and it’s im­por­tant for res­i­dents and the com­mu­nity to sup­port and see the tal­ent works on dis­play.

June is the founder and gallery co-or­di­na­tor of Heart of the Art Gallery and she can be found on Face­book.

She is en­cour­ag­ing lo­cals and peo­ple trav­el­ling through to call in to the gallery for a look.
