AWARD-winning fine artist Meaghan Shelton brings a solo exhibition to the Kandanga Country Club this month titled "Homeward Bound".

Ms Shelton won the Portraiture category of the Kenilworth Trophy Art Prize last year, and exhibits throughout Australia. She was shortlisted for the ANL Prize in Victoria as well as the Clayton Utz Prize, in Queensland.

Her exhibition is on show from Friday-May 15, but come along for a special viewing with a talk by the artist on Friday at 6pm. Meals are available at the club, formerly known as the Kandanga Bowls Club.

Two-piece cigar box blues arrangement Eb n Flo will create the perfect backdrop for the evening.

Ms Shelton is a graduate of RMIT majoring in painting, and now works from her Imbil studio.

She is the newest committee member of Mary Valley Arts Link, the cultural group which co-ordinates the artspace at Kandanga Country Club, and will curate a program of on-going exhibitions at the club.

It is a two-pronged move by Mary Valley Arts Link - to make art accessible to the general public and to promote the works of its member artists.

She said the renovated club provided the perfect backdrop to the original artworks and offered a professional hanging system to make it a great local exhibition space.

If you are an artist and would like to feature in an exhibition, contact Ms Shelton on 0428 645 057.
