High quality art displayed
Hundreds milled to the Memorial Centre at the weekend to check out the Matamata Society of Arts annual exhibition.
Member Lois Allen said there was a good turnout at the opening on Friday, which continued through Saturday and Sunday.
‘‘I thought it was amazing – there was lots and lots of people.
‘‘ We have had good feedback and lots of peo- ple brought children along which was nice.’’
There was an impressive number of entries from the Waikato and the Bay of Plenty in the Painting of Nature competition and president Margaret Dwyer said the calibre was extremely high.
The society holds one major exhibition a year to showcase the work of its members.
