The Bundaberg Art Society will be spreading colour and brightness with a new exhibition, starting on Saturday 18 July at Hazzard Gallery.

Bundaberg Art Society President Marilyn Batty said they wanted to do something positive for the region.

“The exhibition came about after talking to our members about what we could do to lift our spirits and the local community’s spirits, both the business community and residents,” Marilyn said.

“Basically, we wanted to add some colour back into our lives.”

Over 20 of Bundaberg Arts Society’s members will be participating.

“We will have 54 artworks in a variety of mediums – ceramics, oils, pastels, watercolours, acrylics, photos and linoprints – of local landscapes, seascapes, cafes and local landmarks and flora.

“There will be something for every taste.

“We want to showcase our region’s hidden gems and to express why we live here.

“We also have a giftshop, which is full of locally produced artwork, cards, sculptures, scarves and many more items produced by our talented members.”

Well known artist Wendy Francis is looking forward to the Exhibition.

“I will be hanging two linoprints,” Wendy said.

“It will be my first exhibition since COVID restrictions started to lift and it will be good to get everyone together again.

“I do this for fun, laughter, community, enjoying with others a shared interest in art in all its quirks.”

The exhibition will be open to the public, with social distancing in place, on Saturday 18 July from 10am til 2pm and again on Sunday 19 July from 10am til 2pm.

“It will then be open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 9am till 12 noon for one month,” Marilyn said.

“There will be free entry, though we do have a raffle with some great prizes.”

The exhibition is at The Hazzard Gallery, 95C Walker Street, opposite TAFE. To find out more visit the Bundaberg Art Society Facebook page.
