Lo­cal artis­tic tal­ent to have work shown

Isis Town and Country - - News -

A BEAU­TI­FUL paint­ing by well known lo­cal artist Ann Gro­cott has been pre­sented for dis­play at the Childers In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre.

Smoke at the Dam, pre­sented by Mem­ber for Burnett Stephen Ben­nett, will hang proudly at the cen­tre for ev­ery­one to en­joy.

Mr Ben­nett spon­sors the Lo­cal Cul­tural Her­itage art­work cat­e­gory at the Bund­aberg Arts Festival, and Ms Gro­cott was this year’s win­ner.

“The ac­quis­i­tive prize en­cour­ages lo­cal artists of all medi­ums to present an art­work to the com­pe­ti­tion based on our lo­cal cul­tural her­itage – built or en­vi­ron­men­tal,” Mr Ben­nett said.

“My com­mit­ment to the arts festival is then to find a home in a lo­cal pub­lic space to dis­play the win­ning piece,” he said.

“As the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre has con­sid­er­able pub­lic traf­fic in­clud­ing vis­i­tors to the re­gion, I hope the art­work will be a talk­ing point and in­tro­duc­tion to the many nat­u­ral at­trac­tions and artis­tic tal­ent avail­able.”

Res­i­dents and vis­i­tors to Childers are en­cour­aged to have a look at the art­work and the vis­i­tors cen­tre can help you with great ideas for the Christmas school hol­i­days.

The Childers In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre is openly daily.
