A unique range of art works forged by life experience of tough country girl June McCotter will be on display at the Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery throughout November.
The exhibition opened this week and showcases her striking colourful tributes which show her love of Australian landscape.
June’s works were completed when things got tough and she would escape briefly into a world of creativity with clay and paint.
Artist June McCotter said having recently exhibited at RM Williams in Eidsvold, she is looking forward to showcasing her work to the Gin Gin Community.
“I have been an artist for thirty years and had pieces of my work go to Japan and Singapore, and most recently I had an exhibition at RM Williams in Eidsvold,” she said.
“Those who visit the exhibition can expect a range of pieces including landscapes and flowers, but they are all quite vibrant.”
June said each of the pieces had taken her varying amount of time, depending on the mediums used.
“These pieces have all taken me different lengths of time, some a few hours and other days as they use different mediums from mixed media to abstract paintings,” she said.
“All pieces are available for sale, and if they buy two pieces of the art you get one free.”
A meet and greet will take place on Saturday 26 November at 2 pm with light refreshments to be served as part of this.
The thirty works will be on display until Wednesday 30 November.
The Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery is located at 80a Mulgrave Street, Gin Gin (next to the police station).
Normal gallery hours are Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.
Admission to the gallery is free with disability access to the gallery and amenities available.
