The Cottage celebrates its 50th year in 2017 and President Jan Nelson is delighted by the creative talent and effort cottage members are putting into their work in this landmark year.

"Our Painting Group has grown to over 50 members, including both artists of long standing, and up and coming artists," Ms Nelson said.

"Art Expo will reflect the huge range of interest and technique in a group of this size, who not only exhibit together but also share studio space at the Cottage, and generously share their ideas with each other"

The exhibition will be held at the Buderim Craft Cottage, 5 Main Street, Buderim.
