See Johnny Depp in a new way at gallery

JOHNNY Depp is displayed in a whole new way at an exhibition that's now showing at Hervey Bay Regional Gallery.

Artist Marlies Oakley used recycled postage stamps to create 26 portraits of iconic figures, for the exhibition called 'Nothing New?'

Depp features in two of them - through his roles as Captain Jack Sparrow and Edward Scissorhands.

Hervey Bay Regional Gallery cultural co-ordinator Vanida Petts encourages everyone to come along to witness this unique artistic display.

"The collages have been put together with very fine detail,” she said.

"It's made entirely from postage stamps. Come on down and have a look because it is amazing.”

The famous people are from popular culture, history, music, television and movies. 'Nothing New?' will be showing at the Hervey Bay Regional Gallery until March 19.
