MOUNT Perry’s ta­lent was on show at 30 Years of Art in the Perry at the week­end.

The small town came to life as peo­ple from across the re­gion gath­ered to cel­e­brate.

Mem­bers of the Childers Art Group put on live dis­plays at the event.

Satur­day was filled with live mu­sic, art, food, drinks, cel­e­bra­tions, a jump­ing cas­tle and prizes.

There were mar­ket stalls on the day, with hand­i­crafts and art be­ing sold.

Mu­sic work­shops were con­ducted by Chris Wil­son and Robert Throne from Mel­bourne.

Art work­shops were also held dur­ing the day for those with a love of art, or for any­one want­ing to try their hand at a new tech­nique.

The high­light of the event was the of­fi­cial open­ing of the new ex­hi­bi­tion in the gallery.

There is still plenty of time to see the ex­hi­bi­tion as it runs un­til No­vem­ber 11.

The gallery is open Mon­day, Thurs­day, Fri­day 9am–1pm and Tues­day, Wed­nes­day 9am–4pm.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was judged by Dale Leard.

Ms Leard is a well-known Western Queens­land artist who moved to Bund­aberg a few years ago.

Since re­tir­ing, she has con­tin­ued her love of art by com­pet­ing in lo­cal shows and com­pe­ti­tions.
