Lifeline’s big night
Friday, 27th June, 2014
Everyone will have the chance to look at art from around the region at Lifeline’s Annual Art Exhibition tonight.
The big fundraiser for Lifeline gives artists the opportunity to display their works and people the chance to buy paintings at realistic prices.
“Artists pay a hanging fee and if their artwork sells Lifeline receives a 25 per cent commission - so the more paintings we sell, the better,” said Lifeline’s Fundraising co-ordinator, Trevor Odgers.
Mr Odgers said there were 110 works in the show.
“Artists are happy to submit their work,” he said. “We have about the same numbers as last year. We filled all the walls last year.”
The exhibition opens at the Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum in Crystal Street and will run until July 13.
It gets underway at 7pm with the opening being performed by Barrier Police Commander, Inspector Murray Reynolds.
