With lockdowns lifting and freedom returning to communities everywhere, a group of local creatives from Gordon and Mt Egerton decided to pool their collective talent to set up an exhibition in the historic Gordons at Gordon Café.

With the fitting title of ‘Covid Creations’ with many of the works completed during lockdown, the exhibition consists of a range of pottery or ceramic items, photographic montages, marbled cups, bowls, paper and gift cards as well as some framed nature ‘assemblages’.

The works of art are beautifully complimented by the white, pressed-tin walls of the old ‘Bar Room,’ so named from the days when the building was a pub. There’s even a cellar trap door in the floor.

Artists of ‘Covid Creations’ include Mike Bradley, Chris Creaney, Michele Winsor, Robert McLaren and Jane Gardner. The exhibition is currently open to the public every Saturday from 10am ‘til 2pm. Local nursery owner Heidi Johnson is also in attendance each Saturday with a variety of beautiful plants for sale along the building’s old veranda.
