Lagoons Gallery exhibition – Kid’s painting competition

February’s art exhibition will feature artworks submitted by some of our young artists from the Mackay region who took part in our kid’s painting competition over the Christmas school holidays.

All artworks have been inspired by nature and our local artists exhibiting their pieces are aged between 7-17 years. We look forward to sharing their pieces with you in February. Come on in and place your vote for the best painting on display! Simply complete a voting form in the café and put into the ballot box. Don’t forget these artworks have been created by or young artists, each artwork is a child’s view of nature communicated through paint!

The Lagoons Gallery is located in the Botanic Gardens Café, open Wednesday to Friday 9am to 3pm. Weekends 8am to 4pm. For more information, please contact us at the Botanic Gardens, Monday to Friday (except public holidays) on phone (07) 4952 7300 or email
