The cherished Foothills Art Show returns from 31 May to 2 June highlighting the creativity of local artists through a diverse array of mediums including watercolour, acrylic, and oil paintings, alongside photography, sculpture, and jewellery.

Artists can submit up to five art pieces into a category.

The event will showcase feature artist Damien McAller’s works, with this year’s theme ‘metamorphosis’ representing change and development.

The art show will be held at an exciting new venue in the heart of Withcott, the Steve Jones Community Centre, in 2024.

Other categories include textiles and wearable art and a primary and secondary student section.

Foothills Art Show coordinator Janice Holstein said the art display was integral to supporting local artists with entrants this year, mainly from the Toowoomba and Lockyer Valley regions.

“It’s a fantastic way of seeing what talented people we have in our region, and this allows them to talk to other artists, get feedback from judges, and display their work,” she said. 

“This year we’re very excited we’ve got Lockyer District High School doing the catering for us.

“It’s all about supporting local artists, getting their name out there, and hopefully bolstering artist sales for them.”
