Gin Gin exhibition inspired by change

The Gin Gin Courthouse members exhibition is on display this month, with members contributing pieces inspired by change.

Inspiration for the theme was drawn from the need for social isolation due to COVID throughout 2020 and the change that this created in the lives of the gallery members.

During this time the gallery closed for two months, which also contributed to social change for members.

Sue Robinson from Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery said each member had time for reflection over the past 12 months.

“COVID gave everyone the time to think about how their life is changing and so the artwork that has been done over the past 12 months represents the change within the lives of our members,” Ms Robinson said.

“There are over 50 pieces of artwork in the exhibition, many of which are bright and colourful to bring joy to those who come and visit.”

The gallery’s new members include the 2020 Bundaberg Region Citizen of the Year Wendi Guy who has contributed contemporary artwork that is different from that of other members.

“Wendi has contributed a range of new age artwork that adds a splash of colour to the exhibition,” Ms Robinson said.

The public is invited to attend the exhibition which will be on display at the gallery until Wednesday 30 June.

The Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery is located at 80a Mulgrave Street Gin Gin, next to Police Station.

Normal gallery hours are Tuesday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.

Admission to the gallery is free and disabled access to the gallery and amenities is available.
