CREATIVE CUTS - Early bird artist

Kingaroy watercolour artist and former academic Suzi Wells (pictured) was the first to get her entry form lodged for the 2024 Mary Valley Art Festival. 

It is the third time she has entered the popular competition which offers $11,500 in prizes, including the RJR Property Best in Show award for $3000 and $1500 for the Open winner from Gympie’s Bendigo Bank 

There are 10 sections in the show being held at the Imbil Public Hall, Imbil, from July 25-28 and entry forms are due by July 8.

But it’s not about winning prizes for Suzi; “It doesn’t bother me if I win or not, I enter to challenge myself.”

The 2024 Mary Valley Art Festival opens for viewing on July 25 from 10am-4pm each day until July 28, with the gala awards presentation on Friday July 26 from 6pm.

The weekend includes a poets’ breakfast and the Masondale People’s Choice Awards, plus the Gympie Region Studio Trails. For more details and entry forms visit:
