MANSFIELD may not have a designated art gallery, but that does not mean that there is not the opportunity to view a fine art collection, thanks to the Rotary Club of Mansfield.
For over 30 years, the Rotary Club, in conjunction with the Mansfield District Hospital Ladies Auxiliary, has organised an art show and donated the monetary prize for the artist whose painting is judged the best.
As the prize is acquisitive, it means that the town has been gifted a substantial art collection, which in the last few years has found a permanent home in the buildings of MACE (Mansfield Community Education Centre).
Tourists and locals alike are welcome to view the collection which lines the
