A birthday to BRAG about
VISITORS to Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG) were shivering despite the heat yesterday as they took in an awe-inspiring exhibition called Antarctica – A Place in the Wilderness.
“I particularly loved the picture of the girls enjoying themselves in the spa, in the middle of all that snow,” visitor Cheryl Smith said.
She also took time to study them and find familiar faces from around Bundaberg, in a collection of 16 sketch books by local artist Betsy Blears.
Mrs Smith visited the exhibitions on Saturday as the gallery celebrated its first birthday since it was re-developed from the former Bundaberg Arts Centre.
And she said there was no better way she could imagine to spend her day.
“It’s absolutely my favourite place to be,” Mrs Smith said.
“Ever since it became BRAG, there has been an amazing new energy and the exhibitions have been even better.”
