Artwork captures colourful country
A BUILDING which was once a Nestle condensed milk factory packing shed is now putting Toogoolawah on the map by showcasing some of the region's most impressive artwork.
The 100-year-old building was restored and opened as the Somerset Regional Art Gallery - The Condensery, in December last year.
A new colourful exhibition is on display at the gallery and includes 74 unique artworks from the artist group, Volcanic Colours.
The gallery's new exhibition is a visual experience that comprises of conventional and contemporary works from four artists; Margaret Klumpp, Louise Fesse, Val Donaldson and Natasha Hodgson. Each of the award winning artists specialises in different genres, with Ms Hodgson being an experienced watercolour artist.
She has previously won awards at the Laidley, Gatton and Ipswich shows for her colourful and expressive paintings.
The Volcanic Colours' collection aims to give observers a glimpse through the artist's eye and depict their interpretation of life's journey.
The exhibition will be on display until Sunday, April 3.
The Condensery is open Wednesday to Friday, 9am - 5pm and Saturday to Sunday from 9am - 2pm at 29 Factory Rd, Toogoolawah. For more information visit somerset.qld.gov.au/condensery
