Last week artist Jean Kane opened her Curtis Island Exhibition at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens. Hoping her paintings would give Gladstone residents more of an insight into the beauty of Curtis Island, Jean would like to steer away from the image of industry and gas plants.
Jean who has lived on Curtis Island for over 20 years said her paintings are accurate of the beauty of the island, and not exaggerated. She hopes that people will be able to see what she knows well.
The exhibition includes paintings of the old dairy farm, which is no longer operating, and squatters’ shacks that were built on the water’s edge.
The exhibition is open 9am to 4pm until the 30th of November.
