Sup­port en­ables art ex­pan­sion at show

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE COMMUNITY -

FINE arts shares the art pav­il­ion at show time with the pot­tery sec­tion and, be­cause of the gen­eros­ity of artist Julie Brown, they have six brand new plinths to dis­play 3D items.

Julie, a Stan­thorpe Artists’ Group mem­ber, had the plinths con­structed and painted in time for this year’s show.

The gen­eros­ity of lo­cal artists and busi­nesses is one of the lovely things about the an­nual show which makes this a great com­mu­nity.

Stan­thorpe artists form the back­bone of the vol­un­teer team which make the fine arts com­pe­ti­tion hap­pen for the show and their love of the district led them to spon­sor a new prize, en­ti­tled Why I love Stan­thorpe. All artists are en­cour­aged to en­ter with their de­pic­tion of the theme.

Ju­nior classes have been ex­panded to give a greater range of age groups for young peo­ple and this was made pos­si­ble be­cause of spon­sor­ship from Scal­ly­wag­gery De­sign. Young­sters from kinder­garten to high school are en­cour­aged to en­ter with the theme for this year be­ing Nat­u­ral Won­ders.

There will be lots to see and do at the art pav­il­ion dur­ing the show with artist demon­stra­tions and art ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages.

En­tries will be ac­cepted on Jan­uary 20 from 9am–noon dur­ing the reg­u­lar show­grounds mar­kets. En­try forms are now on­line at stan­thor­peshow­grounds.com.au
