GAYN­DAH’S cul­tural hub will play host to an ex­clu­sive work­shop and ex­hi­bi­tion cour­tesy of some im­por­tant artists.

Well-known Bund­aberg artist Ross Driver will be mak­ing the trip to pro­vide two free work­shops.

Want­ing to help peo­ple who are do­ing it hard in the bush, Mr Driver will be host­ing a morn­ing ses­sion and af­ter­noon lessons in sepia.

Held at 9am, the morn­ing ses­sion will be held at the Gayn­dah mu­seum, then the gallery will host a ses­sion at 1pm to fin­ish the art­work with wa­ter­colours or acrylics.

Gayn­dah Art Gallery’s Wendy Kirk is look­ing for­ward to the af­ter­noon ses­sion in par­tic­u­lar.

“We’re look­ing at how to make the old paint­ings look older, through the use of sepia,” Mrs Kirk said.

The fol­low­ing day on Fe­bru­ary 9, the gallery will be host­ing its pop­u­lar portraits ex­hi­bi­tion Our Peo­ple, Our Sto­ries.

North Bur­nett artists have painted iconic faces from across the re­gion and they will be on dis­play for all to see at Gayn­dah Art Gallery.

“We have peo­ple com­ing down from Monto, Mt Perry and across the re­gion. We’re try­ing to in­clude the North

Bur­nett in ev­ery­thing we do,” Mrs Kirk said.

The gallery is en­deav­our­ing to in­clude the en­tire com­mu­nity in or­der to raise pub­lic in­ter­est in tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tions.

“This year we thought we’d con­cen­trate on our art, all in the North Bur­nett, and work to­gether.”

For the Satur­day work­shops, a chair and lunch is re­quired, with en­try cost­ing $5. Be­gin­ners may be as­sisted with Gayn­dah Art Gallery sup­plies. The North Bur­nett of­fi­cial portraits ex­hi­bi­tion will run from 1–3pm on Sun­day with af­ter­noon tea pro­vided.

Come down to meet the artists be­hind the portraits.
