AN investment into the arts in Somerset has resulted in 10 galleries joining forces to promote the Somerset Art Gallery Trail.

Bright pink flags now proudly fly outside public, community and privately owned galleries in Somerset.

The project forms part of Somerset Regional Council’s broader arts activation project funded through the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).

Regional Arts Development Fund Committee Chair, Councillor Cheryl Gaedtke, said the project originated from a simple, yet worthwhile, idea from an arts community member.

“The Somerset Art Gallery Trail promotes and encourages residents and visitors to view all of the region’s 10 art galleries,” Cr Gaedtke said.

“Geographically, the trail covers galleries in the north of the region from Kilcoy, down to the south in Lowood with the regional gallery - The Condensery, located centrally at Toogoolawah.

“Along with the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, the Somerset Art Gallery Trail provides another reason for visitors to come and explore the region.”

The trail was launched at the Courthouse Art Gallery in Kilcoy on Friday, 20 May.
