Showcase of art rolls into town
A FREE travelling arts showcase will tour the North Burnett region towards the end of this month, and all eager artists are encouraged to roll up and attend the “Come and Try Days” covering a variety of media.
The showcase is an initiative of North Burnett Regional Council and Regional Arts Development Fund Committee, aimed at providing an opportunity for members of the public to come and sample a variety of visual and performing arts.
Five different artists will conduct workshops in ceramics, photo to fabric and embellishing, circus performing, encaustic (hot wax) art and marbled placemats.
Council community services arts and culture manager Trisha Hansen said community interest in arts and culture had prompted the council to apply for the funding.
“I really hope people take the opportunity to come and have a look,” she said.
Mrs Hansen said the workshops were open to all ages.
“I think the circus workshop will be really popular with the kids,” Mrs Hansen said.
Sign-on will be from 9am and will be a case of “first in, best dressed”.
The travelling art showcase will be in Biggenden on February 27, Mt Perry on March 19, Monto on June 18, Eiddsvold on July 16, Mundubbera on August 20 and Gayndah on September 17 and will stay in each town for about two weeks.
Anyone interested in holding arts and craft stalls or sausage sizzles on the day are urged to book. For details, call 4165 5700.
