Art so­ci­ety in­vites the pub­lic to cel­e­brate Aus­tralia’s flora and fauna at ex­hi­bi­tion

Gatton Star - - ADVERTISIN­G FEATURE / LAIDLEY SPRING FESTIVAL -

FINE arts will be on show again at the Spring Fes­ti­val.

The Lock­yer Val­ley Art So­ci­ety will show­case its mem­bers’ tal­ents, and mem­ber Pippa Van Gilst said the group had been work­ing hard for the past 12 months.

“We’re very ex­cited, it’s a great op­por­tu­nity for us to show our work to the com­mu­nity,” Ms Van Gilst said.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will cen­tre on the Spring Fes­ti­val’s theme of Aus­tralian flora and fauna, with both paint­ings and draw­ings.

It will open on Septem­ber 11 with a free launch event. Ms Van Gilst en­cour­aged to pub­lic to at­tend.

“We have a jolly good evening,” she said. “But if you miss the open­ing night, you can still check out the ex­hi­bi­tion in the Lutheran church hall through­out the Spring Fes­ti­val.”

The so­ci­ety’s ex­hi­bi­tion has be­come an in­te­gral part of the fes­ti­val, with the group hold­ing the show for more than 10 years now.

“We used to hold it at the cul­tural cen­tre... but we’re now down at the Lutheran church hall which is good be­cause it gives us a venue all to our­selves,” she said.

❝ We’re very ex­cited, it’s a great op­por­tu­nity for us to show our work.
