Meet the wonderful artists

The Lodge Outback Hotel is now home to a new art exhibition featuring six talented artists.
The exhibition is named the ‘Outback Colour and Wind,’ a title that is a combination of characteristics of this region and elements that inspires the artists of Broken Hill. The art exhibition is part of the Broken Hill Art Exchange series of events.
One of the artists happens to be the director and joint owner of the Lodge Outback Motel, Helene Power.
Helene is the organiser of the exhibition, and said it came about as a way to liven up the hotel corridors and bring the area alive.
It has long been a vision of the Lodge Outback Motel to use their public area to display art that showcases the region of Outback New South Wales.
Six artists are featured in the exhibit, four locals and two from South Australia.
Each artist has a different specialty and unique talent. These artists include - Susan Thomas, Gritta Walker, Asma d Mather, Karl James, Sam Oster and Helene Power.
This art exhibition stems all from the initiative of Helene, from organising the artists to installing the hooks and new lights as well as arranging the art pieces.
It is what appears to be a passion project based on her love of art, local history and the outback - thus incorporating all three in the exhibition.
The exhibition will run through March and April and is open every day from 10 - 4pm.
This Saturday, March 10, at 3pm there will be a ‘meet the artist’ event including afternoon tea.
