Parkes Painting Group exhibition

Fri 16 April - Sat 1 May

Members of the Parkes Painting Group are getting ready for their annual art exhibition that will run from 16th April to 1st May in the Conventry Room at the Cultural Centre.

“We are all looking forward to it, especially after we had to cancel last year’s exhibition and could not meet as a group for three months,” said President Kim Chambers.

“People are really keen to get out and about and see what is happening in the community,” said Secretary Annette Witherow.

Kim said most members had a good selection of paintings to choose from for the exhibition. “We hope that each of our 22 members would have two to three paintings to show.”

The opening on Friday, 16th April at 7pm will be done by Roxanne Gallacher, Creative Learning Programs Coordinator of the Parkes Library and Cultural Centre.

Proceeds from the sale of the art works, the gold coin donation entry, $10 cover charge on the opening night and raffle will be donated to a local charity, as has been the custom for the group celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

The exhibition will be open from Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm and Saturday from 9:10am to 12pm.
