Mackay In Pictures, Through My Eyes By Jeff Jones Foto GraphiX

Mackay In Pictures, Through My Eyes By Jeff Jones Foto GraphiX

5th Dec 2018 9:00am - 27th Jan 2019 4:00pm

In his first photographic exhibition, Mackay In Pictures, Through My Eyes, local photographer Jeff Jones invites you to come and see his various works from around the Mackay Region. Jeff hopes he is able to raise people’s awareness about the conservation of our stunning local ecosystems and hopes that he is able to inspire others to get outdoors and appreciate our local region as much as he does.

“I now take great pleasure in venturing out and looking for pleasing compositions around our region and in particular the beaches and rocky headlands. I must confess to being a bit of a greenie/eco warrior and if I can contribute in some way towards the preservation of some of our rapidly diminishing wild eco systems, that would be a bonus!  I hope you enjoy the very first exhibition of my work. Cheers, Jeff Jones.

This exhibition is available for viewing from Wednesday December 5, to Sunday, January 27, 2019 in the Lagoons Gallery at the Botanic Gardens Café in the Mackay Regional Botanic Gardens. Please note that the Café will be closed from Monday December, 24 and will re-open on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.
