The National Gallery, Canberra, has the original ‘Blue Poles’ painted by Jackson Pollock but the South Burnett has 14 of its own blue poles, each adorned with two artworks.
Exhibiting artists with work displayed in the Wondai Regional Art Gallery are invited to produce paintings using just four basic outside house paint colours on donated boards. These painting are attached to the 14 poles situation throughout the shire. Nine of the poles are located in Wondai, one in Tingoora, two in Proston and two in Murgon.
This unique way of taking art to the people and ‘the pole’ are a real talking point for visitors, with many a photograph taken next to one of them. Every two years the paintings are taken down and auctioned and new artworks take their place.
