One Wish opens Friday

All are welcome to join local artist Katrina Elliott at the Gallery and Museum from 6pm tomorrow evening for the official opening of her new exhibition One Wish.

Presenting a range of photography, sculpture and assemblage works, One Wish explores hope, health courage and support.

Inspired by the traditional belief of Senbazuru - if one folds 1000 cranes one's wish will come true - Katrina has worked with staff, patients, family and friends from the Gladstone Base Cancer Care Unit to fold 1000 paper cranes which will feature in the exhibition.

To RSVP, please phone 49766766 or email gragm@gladstonerc.qld.gov.au.

Also on display is the 2016 Celebrate Australia Primary School Art Competition Exhibition.

Inspired by 'who and what make Australia great', the exhibition features a range of colourful and imaginative artworks from primary school aged students across the Gladstone region.

Free commemorative postcards of the top six winning artworks are available to all visitors.

The Gallery and Museum is a community cultural initiative of the Gladstone Regional Council, open 10am-5pm Monday to Saturday, located on the corner of Goondoon and Bramston Sts, Gladstone and admission is free.
