70 years on and still colouring

THE Bundaberg Art Society is celebrating its 70th birthday and what better way to mark the occasion than with an art exhibition.

The group is holding its final exhibition for the year at the School of Arts building until November 21.

The exhibition opened on Monday and has had plenty of

interest.

Society member Marion Berry said the exhibition had a huge range of artwork on offer.

“There are a variety of subjects, from landscapes to seascapes and they are in all types of media, from oil and watercolour to photography, graphite and acrylics,” she said.

“There is something for everyone.

“The members are just so vastly talented in so many media.”

Thirty-five members have combined to display 62 pieces of work, most of which are for sale.

A limited amount of cards displaying the artworks are available for sale.

The exhibition is open from 9am to 3pm daily, excluding Sunday.

Mrs Berry said the society was formed in 1939 and was originally a group of art lovers that got together to discuss art.

“It wasn’t until after World War II that they started making the art,” she said.

The art society meets twice each week to mingle and discuss hot topics in the art world.

New members are always welcome to join.

The group opened its own studio and gallery last year and is looking forward to the next 70 years of colourful creativity.
