In the days leading up to the show, the Centre on Myall Street in Tea Gardens was transformed into rooms of lovingly displayed art, photography, mosaics and craft to show off the best the group has to offer to the public.

“The Centre has a dedicated group of volunteer men who help out every year with the set up, clearing out the rooms to make way for the exhibits,” Co-Ordinator, Maryanne Durrant said.

And when the doors were open on the first day the people just kept coming over the next 72 hours.

“People came in and were asking if they could place orders for some items,” Maryanne said.

While many items were sold, there was a raffle running all through the long weekend of art to raise funds for Community Transport in Tea Gardens.

The winner was Ann Bernar who was lucky enough to take home the beautiful painting titled “Bennett’s Beach” donated by well known artist Joan Richards.

Winner of the People’s Choice Award for the best art work was Christine Preston for her painting titled “Stormy Sunset”.

As they’ve done for more than 20 years now the group will be back to do it all again next year.
