Gallery toasts 14th birthday

JOIN in the fun of Gympie Regional Gallery's 14th birthday celebrations from 10.30am on March 3.

There'll be a variety of activities and displays from local creative groups and you can relax and mingle with the artists while you try your hand at drawing, making a watercolour painting or simply chatting with some of the people who share the Workshop Space at the rear of the gallery.

Stay around for a cake cutting and Welcome to Country ceremony at noon.

This will be followed by two exhibition openings, the Gympie State High School Centenary Art Exhibition and an exhibition showcasing Cooroy artist Mark O'Neill's latest sculptural works titled Human Nature.

Both exhibitions will be on show until March 29.

The fun will continue until 2.30pm with face painting and badge making for the children and a free sausage sizzle supplied by the Friends of the Gympie Regional Gallery.

Cool drinks will be available for the whole family.

So, make a day of it and soak up the creative atmosphere.
