This November marks the 100-year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, which brought an end to World War One.
To mark the occasion, the Somerset Regional Art Gallery – The Condensery will display a historical exhibition, An End to Conflict.
This important exhibition presented by the Toogoolawah and District History Group includes a series of paintings, Why War, by Toogoolawah resident Merton Chambers who is an internationally recognised artist, together with an installation of remembrance poppies by artists Chris Just and Jayne Hodge in collaboration with the Somerset community.
