Local artistic talent to have work shown
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.
Check with staff for the opening hours.
