Helpers get creative with a paintbrush

MORE than 20 enthusiastic volunteers turned out to help paint Creative Gladstone's second location at the weekend.

Adrienne Ward, the president of the volunteer-run, non-profit organisation, was extremely pleased with the turnout.

"It was two big, long days with a lot of laughter, hard work, and dedication," she said.

"A big thank you particularly to our landlord, David, who was there all day each day guiding, preparing, painting and helping clean up."

The new space, located at Shed 5 on 8 Crow St, will bring the industrial nature of Gladstone together with the rich and diverse undercurrent of talent in the region.

This new location will run alongside the organisation's existing space on the corner of William and Auckland Sts.

Ms Ward was looking forward to the future of the organisation.

"The space will be an opportunity to attract new ideas and new artists," she said.

"It is exciting to be expanding our capabilities and looking at a new level of possibilities for us."
