Lifeline Broken Hill Country to Coast’s 30th Art Exhibition is an exciting opportunity for artists to display and share their creative works with the local community. 

Lifeline’s Operations Manager, Marisa Pickett said this is a very exciting time and there is still room for more entries.

“There is definitely room for more entries, for anyone who over the weekend decides they may like to submit something,” she said. 

“This event is Lifeline’s major fundraiser for the year, it’s about putting the fun in fundraising.” 

“Willy Nilly Art helped out immensely last year when there was a chance we may not have been able to hold the event,” said Marisa. “They have come back on board this year as a 50/50 partner and we’re going to give it everything we’ve got.”

Other supporters included West Darling Arts and the Albert Kersten Mining and Mineral Museum, in particular John Fadden who without their expertise and support the event wouldn’t happen.

“We’re looking for those who haven’t thought of entering and may be too critical of their own work, this is a supportive environment to display your creativity and potentially sell your first piece for a good cause,” she said. 

Organisers wished to reiterate to potential entrants that this is an exhibition not a competition, the purpose of the exhibition is to display the evident love of art and creativity, not to be critiqued. 

The exhibition opens on Friday October 18 with an event at the Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum from 6pm to 9pm. 

All mediums of art are accepted.
