Lifeline calls on emerging artists

As BH Lifeline continues to celebrate its 50th anniversary this year, another milestone is being ticked off for one of its most successful annual fundraisers.
The organisation’s yearly art exhibition is due to kick off in just under a month’s time and CEO Scott Hammond is calling on all budding artists to feature their work as it enters its 25th year.
“Every year artists have been very supportive,” he said.
“It’s themed on emerging artists but professional artists have got on board and supported it as well.”
The exhibition received over 130 entries and recorded a total profit of $3,390 last year.
Mr Hammond felt the artistic concept worked well with Lifeline’s message of the importance of addressing emotions.
“It’s about looking at other ways to express feelings,” he said.
Entries are due by Friday, June 20 and the cost is $8 per painting submitted.
Artists are able to enter a maximum of four paintings which must be original works, suitably mounted for hanging and available for sale.
Generally, 25% of the profits from items sold will go back into Lifeline, with the remainder to be kept by the artist.
Those interested in exhibiting their work can get more information by dropping into Lifeline at 194 Argent Street or phoning (08) 8087 7525.
