The Willyama Art Society opened a heritage-themed show last night. 

Plenty of beautiful artworks crafted by the members of the Willyama Art Society are now on display and available for purchase. The show will run for a month, opening daily at the Willyama Visual Arts Centre across from the tourist centre, with the final day being November 5. 

The event opened with supper and wine provided to those who attended. Dr Ramu Nachiappan presented the prize for this year’s annual exhibition to Bob Groves. 

President of the Willyama Art Society, Robyn Taylor said the artworks on display showcase Broken Hill in a wonderful art form. 

“We present works of art from our members celebrating our heritage, whether it be through some of Broken Hill’s most beautiful buildings, scenes of the mines or miners, views of the outback or native flora and fauna,” said Robyn. 

“Art is a way of showing appreciation and pride in our surroundings; sometimes words can’t describe our feelings, thoughts or opinions but a painting can, through the use of vibrant colours and brush strokes,” she said.
