Spring Exhibition Opening – 11am, Saturday 7 September, Kettering Hall
You are cordially invited to attend the Opening of our Spring Exhibition by Kingborough Mayor, Dean Winter.
As well as a chance to see the show, meet fellow artists, and show support, you will also have some delicious morning tea. Come along and bring some friends – let’s make this an occasion to remember.
Help needed. Can you help?
Create your work during the Spring Exhibition
After the success of Kerry Thompson’s ‘performance’ at Jazz in July, here is a chance for you to promote yourself and your work.
We’d like to give our exhibition visitors a chance to see art being created. Seeing it happen will help to promote artistic activities and better engage our community. Can you spare an hour or two to ‘perform’?
If so, we can make a space for you in the hall, or you choose could to do en plein air if the weather is fine
Here is a chance to contribute and to build you profile. INTERESTED? Please call Elizabeth Hunn on 6267 4366
People’s Choice Award
Thanks to two generous sponsors we will have a People’s Choice Award this year. Each visitor will have one vote. The award will go to the artist whose work gets the greatest number of votes
The prizes are: $ 100 gift voucher from Roy at Artery Hobart
$ 84 Twin
Pack of Gin from David Hunn of Hunnington Distillery, Kettering.
