Have a cuppa with the artists

IT IS time to get the calendars and diaries out and plan a trip to the Childers Arts Space to view Living Change the Touring Exhibition of 2013 Queensland Art Awards.

The theme of the exhibition aims to celebrate the richness and diversity of regional and remote community.

To celebrate the opening, CHARTS will be holding a Coffee and Conversation morning with artists Robyn Gergos and Christine Turner at the gallery on Thursday, November 13 from 10am .

The exhibition runs from November 11 until January 11. An Italian Affair is coming to the Gin Gin Regional Courthouse Gallery in November.

This exhibition, which runs during November, will include works by Italian artists Marco Miot, Franco Ciot. Stefano Padovan, Loretta Cappanera, Enzo Costa and Maurizio Frullani, with the participation of Sue Purnell, Deon Hands and Dion Channer.

Dion Channer lived and worked as a teacher of English in Italy on and off for 30 years until June 2003.

During the latter 20 of those years, he taught English at the University of Trieste and made paper by hand in various forms and for various uses.

A large proportion of those uses involves art in one form or another. Naturally, he met and became friendly with a number of people who are artists, among whom are the six mentioned.
