Local flora features, like in this flannel flower tribute.

THE LABOUR Day Long Weekend will witness the return of the annual Myall U3A Art Show at Hawks Nest Community Hall, running from Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October, 9am-3pm.

Billed as ‘bigger and better than ever before’, the artists at the MU3A have been honing their artisanal abilities to produce some unique and beautiful artworks for display and purchase over the weekend.

Labours of love covering many media will be featured, including acrylic, watercolour and pastel paintings, plaster art, painted pots, gift cards, mixed media works and clay figurines – even an official book launch from the U3A Writers’ Group.

Ray Keipert, of the Myall U3A Writers’ Group, has just published his third book, ‘A Hand of Aces’, a dual-compendium of his novellas, ‘Resolution’ and ‘Scimitar’, each an intriguing story of murder, mystery, and espionage drama, set against the volatile backdrops of the Vietnam War and the Silk Road region, respectively.

Mr Keipert’s book will be launched at 11am on Saturday 30 September.

The Tea Gardens Lions Club will be catering sausage sandwiches on both days of the MU3A show, with assorted cakes and slices, tea and coffee run by the MU3A members as well.

The U3A celebrates the concept the ‘Third Age of Life’, and is part of a unique worldwide organization run entirely by volunteers whose aim is to promote mental and physical wellbeing in mature-age people who are no longer in full-time employment, often living in active retirement – people with a lifetime of experience to share with others.

“The U3A Art Group is a wonderful community of people who share an interest in expanding their creative minds and honing their artistic expressions,” Jeanette Hart told NOTA.

“The Art Group is open to anyone wishing to join, whether artistically experienced or a complete art novice.”

More information on this and all other U3A programs and courses will be available at the Art Exhibition, or by visiting their website at
