First prize of a Jan Johnson Furness’ oil painting, is now on its way to its new home on the Sunshine Coast, won by Di Josephson who was a visitor to town. Sharon Patterson won second prize of a huge basket of Easter Eggs and a third prize of more chocolates went to ceramic artist and chief keeper of The Gallery’s garden, Jacqui Bright. The Galleries in the Gardens will have a more activities throughout the year. “We have some very exciting things in the pipeline,” Lee said.
