AFTER 26 years of history, the Laidley Art Society continues to collaborate with the talented and creative types in the community to produce work at their weekly meets at the Laidley Cultural Centre.
Secretary Roger Parker said members enjoy participating in a variety of activities including creative mornings where they enjoy companionship and morning tea whilst working on their own projects.
“The low annual membership fees give members the opportunity to participate in frequent workshops by talented tutors to encourage and explore new techniques and to develop their painting and drawing skills,” Mr Parker said.
“The annual Laidley Art Awards showcase some outstanding artwork from artists all over Australia as well as our own very talented members.”
He said meetings are held at the Cultural Centre every Thursday morning, February to November from 9.30am to noon.
Visitors to the Laidley Show can witness how the Society is actively involved in the society's fine art section, with about 90 paintings being shown.
“Currently one of our members has donated a painting to be raffled with this being displayed every Friday morning in front of the Post Office,” Mr Parker said.
“This member recently won three first prizes at the Ipswich Show.”
