Local women’s art group, Gaara Arts, has developed one of many new exhibitions opening at the Regional Art Gallery.

This latest exhibition has a theme that recognises the contribution that women make to society throughout the world.

It is through women that compassion is born, values nourished and nations are made strong. This is why the Gaara women choose the theme to highlight the strength of women.

‘Stronger Women, Stronger Nations’ will be opened by Adelaide DeMain, tonight at 6pm.

Gaara members Phyllis Ragenovich and Maureen Clark said the group had been working towards this exhibition for months.

“I think it is a fairly tough subject,” Phyllis said.

Maureen said it was very relevant in today’s society.

“There is a great variety of interpretation and styles,” she said.

There will also be other exhibitions opening tonight. Doors open at 6pm. All are welcome. For more information contact Cathy Farry on 08 8080 3440.
