Back in 1947, a small group of Maryborough artists banded together and formed the Maryborough Art Group, flourishing into the Wide Bay Art Society which launched the annual Winter Art Festival.
In 1988 the Art Society was offered accommodation in the old Gatakers building and become incorporated as the Maryborough Arts Society. It relocated to its current Kent Street premises in 2009 in the Old Wintergarden Theatre Building.
These days, it provides a vibrant venue for local and regional artists to showcase their work through a variety of exhibitions to ensure art remains accessible to the general public. You’ll also find a wide variety of reasonably-priced works for sale here in this gallery which is widely supported by a host of local businesses.
