The Customs House Residence in Wharf street Maryborough has become home for the Sense of Wonder Art Exhibition until January 2016. After a successful opening of its first showing at the Wondai Regional Art Gallery, the adaptability of this special exhibition has been tested. Because of its pure size, traveling it has been a challenge but one that is paying off due to it’s success. It opened on the 26th of September as part of Maryborough’s Open House Weekend and it is intended to be open from 10.00am to 2.00pm weekdays and 9.30 to 12.00 weekends. It is a unique exhibition using the visual arts and writing as the basis to bring a story to life. A relatable story with clues scattered throughout to help piece together the past. This will not be its last place on show. More Info as to where it will be going will be announced soon.
