Augusta Margaret River Times - - News - Jack­son Lavell-Lee

The Au­gusta Art Club will cel­e­brate its 51st an­nual art ex­hi­bi­tion from Jan­uary 10-12 with hun­dreds of paint­ings and fine china on show at the Au­gusta cen­ten­nial hall.

An event will be held for the of­fi­cial open­ing at 7pm on Thurs­day.

The col­lec­tion of about 300 new and ret­ro­spec­tive works by 35 club mem­bers will be sold at the event and par­tic­i­pants can en­joy af­ter­noon tea in­cluded in the $5 en­try fee. The theme for the event is “Mov­ing on” which in­cludes works made in club work­shops, paint­ing with­out brushes and acrylic paint­ing.

Pro­ceeds from a raf­fle will be do­nated to the WA Royal Fly­ing Doc­tor Ser­vice and to help­ing run fu­ture events of the club.

Au­gusta Art Club pres­i­dent Bev Schroder said the event was pop­u­lar with both lo­cals and vis­i­tors.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers to show off their works which have been de­vel­oped through­out the year,” she said.

“This event is not to be missed, it gets big­ger and bet­ter every year.”
