Kilcoy Art Society Inc (KASI) thanked Vicky Lilwall for being its Artist of the Month (AOM) for May 2024.

Her collection of local landscapes attracted a lot of interest.

The AOM for June is Ruth Hughes, a life member of the Kilcoy Art Society Inc who has been a regular exhibitor at the Kilcoy Courthouse Art Gallery since it reopened its doors in its new location in Yowie Park in 2012.

Last year Ruth and her husband David enjoyed a long leisurely time in Europe.

Ruth said a picture at every turn was an inspiration for creating her recent artwork.

Although having previously worked mostly in oil, this time she wanted to capture the warmth and colours of her time in Northern Italy with pen, ink and pencil too.

Take a trip to Northern Italy without leaving this wonderful region by visiting the Kilcoy Courthouse Art Gallery during June to view June’s beautiful European-inspired artwork.
