NEA raffle: Win some amazing prizes

- By Simon Ruppert

To celebrate its new-ish home North East Artisans has launched its unique exhibition, Up your Arts, which gives attendees a chance to win some amazing prizes.

NEA moved to 28 Carrier St in August 2020 and since that time volunteers have been busy developing a number of exhibition spaces, a shop and more recently its tea room.

To promote the location, and highlight some of the amazing exhibition­s and workshops it runs members came up with an idea to host the exhibition.

Attendees are encouraged to buy pages of raffle tickets, at $5 per page, and then distribute their tickets into one of 94 boxes — each relating to a piece of art, or a prize donated by a local business.

The exhibition opened on Friday, October 15, and will close on Friday, December 17, when the prizes will be drawn.

Winners will then be notified in the following week and can pick up their prizes before NEA closes for Christmas.

NEA is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

 ?? ?? Excited: deSales Turner (centre) and the NEA volunteers are looking forward to distributi­ng some amazing prizes to the public.
