Going potty for new show

THE WIDE Bay Burnett Potters Association is holding its 35th annual art exhibition, starting this week.

“We’re hoping to get more people interested in art and pottery,” Fraser Coast Regional Art Gallery employee Melissa Duncan said.

The exhibition focuses not only on pottery, but on the illustrations, paintings and sculptures of popular children’s book illustrator John Winch.

The work of the artist, who worked with authors like Libby Gleeson and Maurice Saxby, is what event co-ordinators described as a “must see”.

“Every year we have so many different people come for a look. It will be good to see how it all turns out for 2010.”

Locals are encouraged to visit the art gallery and browse the talent the Wide Bay has to offer from September 24 to November 6.
