There’s still time to catch the latest exhibition at the Kingaroy Art Gallery, and perhaps be tempted by some great Christmas gift ideas.
Until the end of November, the gallery is featuring framed art photographs by Kingaroy photographer Max Walters.
This is the 10th time Max has had his works on display at the gallery, and his fourth solo exhibition.
Originally there were 50 works on display, but two were snapped up by eager buyers before the end of the opening night.
The works include stunning landscapes from across the South Burnett as well as vistas captured interstate on one of Max’s photographic road trips.
Max told southburnett.com.au he was now exploring astrophotography, and some of these works taken in the Gordonbrook area are also included in the exhibition.

Kingaroy Art Gallery also has a pop-up Christmas Shop coming to the gallery for people looking for special Christmas gifts.
From November 22 to December 23, unique items handcrafted by South Burnett artisans will be on sale from 10:00am to 4:00pm, Monday to Friday; and 9:00am to 1:00pm on Saturdays.
