Fine outback art show

West Darling Arts will soon be displaying pastel paintings by people from Tibooburra and district.
The exhibition comes from recent pastel workshops and Executive Director of West Darling Arts, Cathy Farry, who said the works that emerged had been amazing.
“They had a couple of workshops with a pastel artist called Lyn Barnes, and one of those workshops was sponsored by the Royal Flying Doctor Service as part of their Mental Health service,” said Ms Farry.
“They’ve been doing it tough, as a lot of people have, so it’s really nice to put on something that’s a celebration of achievement, and I think they should all be really proud of what they’ve done.
“And they’ve done amazing work, from the ones that I’ve seen. I think some of them have never done any art before.
“Nearly all of them are about the environment around Tibooburra and that general location as well. Beautiful ones of campfires, waterholes, that kind of thing.
“It’s a great exhibition for people who love the outback scenery.
“We’re really happy to be able to put them on show down here in Broken Hill.”
