Art show pulls crowd

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

The Ro­tary Club of Tatura’s an­nual Art Show cer­tainly lived up to all ex­pec­ta­tions, with more than 1000 peo­ple pass­ing through the doors over the three days of the Queen’s Birth­day long week­end, and a record num­ber of paint­ings sold.

Pres­i­dent Richard Sel­way con­grat­u­lated all in­volved in this year’s show adding, ‘‘once again it has been a great suc­cess’’.

Chair­man Simon Pogue also thanked ev­ery­one for their as­sis­tance and in­volve­ment at the art show week­end.

‘‘It was a highly suc­cess­ful event, and it ap­pears at this stage tak­ings are up on last year,’’ Mr Pogue said last week.

He com­mended Ro­tar­ian Richard Graves for ‘‘his com- mit­ment to the show over many years’’.

Fea­tured artist Val Rokahr said she was ex­tremely im­pressed with how the week­end went, and the favourable com­ments re­ceived.

She said the open­ing night (Fri­day) was a huge suc­cess, and in­cluded per­for­mances by the River­side Ram­blers and vo­cal­ist So­phie Fim­mel.

‘‘It was great to see Ro­tar­i­ans dressed up in their cute bow ties to as­sist with serv­ing the food,’’ she said.

The Ro­tary Club’s Face­book page re­ceived­more than 200 tweets com­ment­ing on the show.

This was the Ro­tary Club’s ninth Art Show, and as was the case with pre­vi­ous shows, all prof­its from the event will be chan­nelled back into the com­mu­nity.
