Art show loom­ing

The Tatura Guardian - - News - By Sion­nie Kelly The an­nual Ro­tary Club of Nathalia Art Show will be held from Friday, Au­gust 11, to Sun­day, Au­gust 13, at the Nathalia Sports and Com­mu­nity

The an­nual Ro­tary Club of Nathalia Art Show will re­turn for a sixth con­sec­u­tive year with a wide va­ri­ety of art for peo­ple to feast their eyes on.

Ro­tary Club of Nathalia art show com­mit­tee chair Eve Attwood said the ex­hi­bi­tion would be of­fi­cially opened by Moira Shire Mayor Gary Cleve­land on Friday, Au­gust 11.

‘‘Last year we in­tro­duced hav­ing art judged and this proved very pop­u­lar with all the artists,’’ Ms Attwood said.

‘‘We will con­tinue with an ap­praisal of all the art en­tered and the judge will an­nounce win­ners and make her com­ments, too, on Friday night.’’

McA­dam Aged Care Art Recre­ation Ther­apy founder Julie Gross McA­dam will be the show’s judge.

Ms Attwood said en­tries for the show came from near and far, in­clud­ing Queens­land.

‘‘We re­ceive paint­ings, draw­ings, pho­to­graphs and sculp­tures mostly,’’ she said.

‘‘This year we will also have an ex­hi­bi­tion of ce­ram­ics.’’

The art show is al­ways a pop­u­lar event, and Ms Attwood said each year they usu­ally av­er­aged 275 art pieces.

This year Co­bram artist Mel­ida Lem­pio and Pi­cola artist and sculp­tor Anne E Timm will be at the ex­hi­bi­tion on Sun­day.

Anne E Timm will be work­ing on sculp­tures from about 1 pm un­til the close of the day.

For those who love the chance to win prizes, there will be a raf­fle across the week­end, and there will also be a Peo­ple’s Choice Award for the most pop­u­lar piece of art.

Art will be avail­able to pur­chase.

There will be light re­fresh­ments avail­able from the can­teen, which will be run by the CWA Night­watch group.

All prof­its raised from the show go to Ro­tary projects and this year the com­mit­tee has cre­ated a fundrais­ing theme fo­cused on sup­port­ing lo­cal fam­i­lies through med­i­cal hard­ship.
