Very excited!!! Out of the Box Shop opens tomorrow at 10 am. With almost 30 local artists participating in this concept, visitors to the gallery can experience various forms of art in one location. Located in the Upstairs Gallery in River Street, Mackay, the shop provides an opportunity for local artists to display and sell their work. The director of the gallery, Margaret Burgess, said that “Art is such an important part of a community. It is often difficult, in regional areas like Mackay, for creative people who want to share their work to find a viable and affordable opportunity”. The Paxton’s Creative Space and Upstairs Gallery provides that opportunity. This is just such an excellent concept for artists and our community as a whole.
