7th Fine Art Exhibition

Over the weekend of 25/26 September, 28 member artists from the MACG Fine Art Group and the MACG Clayworkers, held their 7th Annual Fine Art Exhibition at the "much-revamped" MACG Centre within the Maleny Showgrounds.
The exhibition got off to a great start with the Opening Preview Cocktail Party on the Friday night with over 80 guests sipping champers - and munching on fine-finger-food from the kitchen of Janet and Jeanette - and rubbing shoulders with the exhibiting artists.
The show was a huge success - sales wise - and attracted over 300 visitors during the weekend.

The MACG Fine Art Group meets at the MACG Centre - within the Maleny Showgrounds - on the 1st 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month - from 9am. And the MACG Clayworking Group meets at the Centre on each Thursday from 9am. Visitors and new members are most welcome.
Call Ken - 07 5494 2882 - for further information.

Quilts on Show

On the weekend of Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 September, the MACG Quilting Group held their Spring Quilt Show at the Main Pavilion, Maleny Showgrounds.
With 254 quilts and textile artworks on show, this exhibition was certainly the finest and the largest that Maleny has seen, and the Group must be congratulated on putting together such a superb and exciting display of craftsmanship.
Around 700 visitors from Brisbane and the coast - as well as locals from across the Range - attended the show, dined in the MACG Cafe and made their purchases from the many merchants on hand. The beautiful raffle prize was won by Alan and Ann Wilson from Caloundra.
Already the quilters are planning the next show in 2012 !!!

The MACG Quilting Group meets at the MACG Centre within the Maleny Showgrounds every Monday from 9am ... new members are most welcome ...
