Stun­ning art­work

Broome Advertiser - - Happenings - Robert Dougherty

Art­work daz­zled and tales of cre­ativ­ity en­thralled the crowd at the Galiya Mabudyan “All is Good” an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion.

The art show, pre­sented by Ger­manus Kent House, show­cases cre­ativ­ity of res­i­dents and of­fers an op­por­tu­nity to cel­e­brate with a morn­ing tea, a raf­fle, mu­sic, silent auc­tion, and of course, art-in­spired cake on Oc­to­ber 27.

GKH event or­gan­iser Lisa Thorpe said about 40 pieces of art were on dis­play with about 30 res­i­dents gath­er­ing for the event in the house’s multi-pur­pose room.

“It’s been months in the mak­ing with the ac­tiv­i­ties team work­ing closely with our res­i­dents,” she said.

“It was a great turnout on the Fri­day for the Ger­manus Kent Art Show.

“The day con­sisted of many dif­fer­ent types of art­work, from the tra­di­tional can­vas and paint­ings to jew­ellery mak­ing, our metal art birds, string art and ev­ery­thing in be­tween.

“It was also the first time we had asked the lo­cal busi­nesses for do­na­tions for a fundrais­ing silent auc­tion and raf­fle, for which we are very thank­ful.

“We are hop­ing that this can be a bian­nual event, as the re­sponse from the pub­lic was fan­tas­tic.”

Ms Thorpe thanked all res­i­dents, visitors, staff, vol­un­teers and lo­cal busi­nesses for at­tend­ing and sup­port­ing the event.
