Artists returns back to her roots during exhibition

MORE than 35 people attended the recent art exhibition From the Red Centre to the Sea at the Mundubbera Art Gallery on Saturday afternoon.

Enjoying the lovely scenic views from the gallery, visitors were treated to various displays by artists Margaret Cruickshank and Margaret Bradford.

The pair have joined ranks to present their work at the gallery until June 30.

Mundubbera Art Gallery coordinator Sue Allan said they had received a lot of positive comments from visitors who enjoyed visiting the exhibitions.

"All the artists who come here comment on how beautiful our gallery is and how lucky we are to have this in our region,” Mrs Allan said.

"We have a very high standard gallery here in Mundubbera and holding these exhibitions is a way of getting people to come and enjoy the art work.”

Mrs Allan said the visitors enjoyed the official opening which took just under two hours.

"Everyone had a great time, we were treated to good food, good company and a lovely afternoon on the patio,” she said.

Formerly a resident of neighbouring Eidsvold, Margaret Cruickshank is excited to return to her roots and present her iconic Australian pastels to locals.

Ms Cruickshank said she made the decision to display her works in the gallery after several years of humble requests by gallery convenor Sue Allan.

"Co-artist Margaret Bradford is presenting limited edition silk screen prints of places nearby, such as Hervey Bay, Urangan, Maryborough and other places she has lived and worked,” Ms Cruickshank said.

Ms Cruickshank said the works are different but fit well with the title, From the Red Centre to the Sea.

The exhibition will be open until June 30 at the Mundubbera Art Gallery.
