New exhibitions coming soon at Wondai Art Gallery

SEVERAL new exhibitions are coming to the Wondai Art Gallery in September.

In the main gallery will be a photography exhibition by Levi Murray.

The front gallery will play host to an exhibit called He Gave Us Eyes To See Them, by Helen Blythman.

A Wondai Art Gallery spokesperson said the exhibit would feature oil, acrylic, pastel, pen, ink and aquarelle artwork.

"Nature and its beauty is the inspiration of Helen's art,” the spokesperson said.

"Helen is motivated by her belief in a great and good creator of the universe who gives us eyes to see and appreciate his wonderful creation.

"Helen's other motivation is to give whatever money she receives from her artwork to the Developing Foundation in the name of her grandson, 16-year-old Dylan Geary, who has special needs.”

The South Burnett Cake Decorators will also have a display, called All Things Sugar.

"This exhibition is a showcase of the recent work and skills acquired by this talented group through demonstrations and workshops held both at home and away,” the spokesperson said.

Taabinga State School will also have a kids corner display.

The exhibition will be launched at an opening night on September 1 from 6pm. Entry will cost $5, which will include supper and punch as well as live entertainment.

The three exhibits will remain on display until September 23.

For more information phone the gallery on 41685926.
