Gallery workshops to teach skills

ARTWORK need not be big and bold at the Gympie Regional Art Gallery.

The gallery is hosting two workshops tomorrow where participants can learn the skills to make a tiny artwork to fit inside the confines of a matchbox.

Hosting the workshops is artist Michael Ciavarella and, best of all, participation is free.

All budding artists need to bring along to the workshops is a sense of fun to construct one artwork each.

The Gympie Regional Art Gallery is supplying all materials.

Once completed, the miniature artworks will help comprise an exhibition called The Matchbox Show, which will be on view at the gallery from July 17-August 11.

The first of the workshops is scheduled tomorrow from 10am-noon while the second kicks off at 1pm, finishing at 3pm.

To reserve a place, phone the Gympie Regional Art Gallery on 5481 0733.

The Gympie Regional Art Gallery is located at 39 Nash St with opening hours from Tuesday to Saturday 10am-4pm.
