‘Response to the Bunyas’
Audiences in the South Burnett have the opportunity to experience the depth and beauty of the Bunya Mountains as part of Western Downs Regional Council’s first touring exhibition, ‘Response to the Bunyas’. The above image ‘Bunya Mountain 2020’ is an acrylic on canvas (600mm x 760mm) and is an artwork from Sharlene Smith.
This exhibition features a selection of works from 24 local artists which were first exhibited as an outdoor pop-up display at Western Downs Regional Council’s (WDRC) inaugural ‘Arts on Top: Regional Arts Forum’ held in May 2021 and will now be displayed in Wondai Regional Art Gallery from 29 May to 1 July 2023.
WDRC Spokesperson for Community and Cultural Development Councillor Kaye Maguire said this initiative provided talented participating artists exposure for their work which demonstrates the beauty of our region.
Bunya Mountains resident and featured artist Kay Joyce said she was pleased to be part of such a great initiative which shared a beautiful collection of creativity and sentiment with the wider community.
“As an exhibition during the Arts on Top conference, ‘Response to the Bunyas’ enabled visitors to experience and learn something of the mountain, and as a travelling exhibition, it extends that opportunity to those further afield in the towns hosting the exhibition,” Mrs Joyce said.
