There’s still time to catch the Cool Summer Art Exhibit this Saturday 28 January and then every second Saturday. Keep a look out throughout the two villages, as the Galleries in the Gardens artists are also displaying their works at various businesses around the Tea Gardens and Hawks Nest towns. There’s also art work scattered along the Marine Drive making a river walk a stroll of discovery. And don’t forget those infamous Bat Flats, fantastic whimsical creations which are home to the micro bats. The seven works which took out the “Art Under the Eaves competition” are also scattered across the twin towns. By Margie TIERNEY Event Co-ordinator Di Ayers.
