A travelling South Burnett art show which has toured Nanango, Dalby and Warwick is on display at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery until the end of this month.

“Brushes and Flashes Of The South Burnett” was put together by Nanango artist Karren Bolton.

Karren is completing a degree in Fine Arts and came up with the idea of the touring exhibition for her final year project.

The project was run by the Nanango Arts Network Alliance and made its debut at the Nanango Cultural Centre last September.

The exhibition features four works apiece by eleven local artists in a variety of media, including painting, pencil drawing, sculpture and paper tole.

Karren said she had originally planned to tour the exhibition at eight different galleries around Queensland, but organisational difficulties had forced this ambitious schedule to be cut short.

However “Brushes and Flashes” had been very well received wherever it was shown.

Many works had also been sold and needed to be replaced – so the exhibition on show at Wondai is not entirely the same exhibition that debuted at Nanango’s Cultural Centre nine months ago.

“Brushes and Flashes” was officially opened at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery on Friday, July 7 by Cr Ros Heit, who said she was very impressed with the quality of the works and the diversity of styles on display.

Cr Heit congratulated all the artists involved in putting it together, and the positive impression of the South Burnett the exhibition created.

“We have many tremendously talented artists in the South Burnett, and we are lucky we do,” Cr Heit said.

  • Brushes And Flashes Of The South Burnett remain on display the Wondai Regional Art Gallery on the roundabout at Wondai from 10:00am to 4:00pm dally until the end of July. Admission to view the exhibition is free.
