An array of arts and craft types will be on display as part of the upcoming Yesterday – Today – Tomorrow exhibition at Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery.

From Saturday 7 May the exhibition will be showcasing pieces from the Gin Gin Fine Arts Society which will reflect what ‘yesterday – today – tomorrow' means to each individual artist.

With the world being ever changing, memories and experiences of the past give foundation and substance to our present day lives

President of the Gin Gin Fine Arts Society Sue Robinson said the opportunity for artists to work with a broad theme means the artworks on display are all very unique.

“The theme of the exhibition this month is yesterday, today and tomorrow which was selected as a couple of years ago,” Sue said.

“Many of the members struggled with themes that were more niche.

“We decided to go with this so anything that has been completed could be encompassed in the exhibition.

“What occurs with and around us now, including our experiences, relationships and decisions, all form the foundation and substance that will determine in what direction our future paths lie.”

While some of the pieces are a bit older, there are many new pieces that will make up the exhibition, with new members having recently joined the group.

“Some of these pieces have been done well over 12 months ago, but there will also be a number of brand new pieces that have recently been completed,” she said.

“There are 70 entries at the moment and this could continue to increase, with our memberships growing and the group is becoming quite vibrant which is great to see after a difficult three years with covid.”

Sue said the exhibition will be a fantastic opportunity for the public to support local Gin Gin artisans, with all the pieces in the exhibition up for sale.

“Not only is visiting the exhibition the opportunity to look at the fantastic artwork, but also to support our local Gin Gin arts community and purchase a new piece of art,” she said.

“It is so wonderful to be able to present an exhibition such as this to provide an opportunity for our local artists to exhibit their works.”

The exhibition will be open from Saturday 7 May from 2 pm until Wednesday 1 June.

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

Admission to the gallery is free.

Disabled access to the gallery and amenities is available.

The Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery is located at 80a Mulgrave Street, Gin Gin (next to the police station).
