"Artist Friends" is the name chosen by the Monto Art Group for their exhibition at the Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery, as the name explains who they are...Artists and Friends.
The Group has been going for many years and has two life members, who were there at the formation of the Art Group.
Over the years the members have held exhibitions in Monto, Mulgildie, Biloela and Mt. Perry. They are now the stewards for the art section at the local Monto Show in April, and most of their members support the art section each year with their paintings.
Many of their members have been away to workshops in Mulgildie, Kenilworth, Maryborough and Mt. Perry. They have held workshops in Monto, bringing in tutors from far and near to encourage and promote the groups artistic skills, and also have encouraged outside artists to have exhibitions in Monto at the Cultural Centre.
The Monto Art Group are looking forward to this exhibition in the Gin Gin Courthouse Gallery as a way of giving art lovers a chance to see what the artists of Monto have to offer.
The Exhibition Season is Tuesday 7th April to Thursday 21st May 2015. Opening Ceremony is Saturday 11th April at 2 p.m.
