Art show is a lifeline for counselling services
Monday, 28th June, 2010
Lifeline's 21st annual art exhibition opened last night with more than 40 artists showing their works to invited guests.
Fundraising officer Trevor Odgers said at last year's art show about a third of the works sold and that Lifeline was hoping to do at least as good this time.
The exhibition offers up and coming artists the chance to hang their work among those of the more established names.
"It's a major fundraiser for Lifeline services which is a 24-hour seven day a week counselling service," said Mr Odgers.
This year 119 works are being shown by 43 local artists including Sue Coffey, Diedre Edwards, Robert Groves and Colin Radford.
The show will run until Sunday, July 11 at the Albert Kersten Mining and Mineral Museum. Entry is free entry for locals.
Opening hours are from 10am to 5pm weekdays and 1pm-5pm on weekends.
