🏃👀🖼 Hurry into Artspace Mackay this weekend for your last chance to view original prints by Barbara Hanrahan.
Hanrahan's unique figurative drawings and prints cherished a view of nature, mythology and family inspired by the 1970’s women’s movement and her admiration for the iconic paintings of Frida Kahlo.
⏰ Open between 10am to 3pm each day over the weekend.

👏👏👏 Congratulations to John Cant on his Pride of the Region recognition.
🏅 John was awarded the prestigious accolade today by Mayor Greg Williamson in a surprise ceremony in the council chambers.
John's service to our region as a volunteer is as extensive as it is varied. He's a tireless Friend of the MECC and an Artspace Mackay volunteer. He has also volunteered at Mackay Isaac Tourism since December 2009. During that time he operated the Mackay City Centre Heritage tour, a free experience to tourists and locals alongside John Blackwell and Jon Blucher.
He is also active in the preservation of the Pine Island Lighthouse and is proud of his volunteer efforts during the devastating Victorian bushfires.
Thank you for all your countless hours of service John and congratulations 🎉
