Maryborough Art Festival
The Art Festival unfortunately will not be held in 2018, however the Art Society is planning to hold this event once again in 2019.
The Maryborough Art Society was first formed as the Maryborough Art Group in 1947 by a small group of people with a common interest in art. This group flourished, later becoming the Wide Bay Art Society, which was responsible for starting the annual Winter Art Festival.
In 1988 the Art Society went through more changes; it was offered accommodation in the old Gatakers building and changed its name, becoming incorporated as the Maryborough Art Society Inc.
In 2009 the Art Society relocated to its current location, where it continues to provide a venue for the people of Maryborough and the local district to enjoy the arts.
