Stanthorpe's Art in the Woolshed

What do you get when you cross an historic shearing shed with a group of artists?  Art in the Woolshed of course! 

The popular exhibition is held only every two years and is again this Queen's Birthday long weekend.  The Brass Monkey Season is peak tourist time on the Granite Belt so book your Stanthorpe accommodation now.

Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 June the place to be is at the Bendee Woolshed which is about 20 minutes west of Stanthorpe.  Bus transfers will operate from Stanthorpe Visitor Centre - phone 07 4681 2057.

The shed was built in the mid 1920s but the art will be somewhat more contemporary, featuring works from Belinda Perkins, Christine Porter, Di Elsden and Karina Devine.  Each year new talent is unearthed - come and spot the rising stars and share a little country hospitality in the Queensland wine capital.
