Meryl Miller of the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre told News Of The Area, “It’s so exciting to be open once more.

“Being closed to the public for the last seven months provided Port Stephens Community Arts Centre members with the opportunity to refresh and paint interiors.”

To coincide with the reopening the creative members of the centre have exceeded all expectations by bringing in spectacular new works to fit the theme of the opening exhibition of Abstract Modern.

Also on exhibition is a combination of Watercolour Paintings and Pottery.

“The Hall has a special opening exhibition where all our members were encouraged to provide one item.

“This is an exciting display with and array of craft pieces created by our groups Bonsai, Creative Textiles (Fusion), Embroidery, Handicraft, Life Drawing, Mosaics, Paper Craft, Patchwork, Pottery, Printing, Painting, Quilling, Spinning and Weaving, and Woodwork,” she said.

From 21 October to 4 November the centre will hold its annual Quilt Raffle, with the stunning “Floral Fantasy” on display.

Tickets will be available at the sales desk.

Tickets purchased before forced closure will be included in the raffle draw.

The 350 plus talented members of the Port Stephens Community Arts Centre are looking forward to seeing people enjoy their creations.

In line with the reopening, the garden café is also scheduled to open during November.

Admission to the Gallery, which is located near the entrance to Neil Carroll Park at Nelson Bay, is free.

The Gallery is open to the public from 10-4 pm daily, but closes at 1pm on a Sunday.

The community arts centre offers shoppers a wonderful recourse for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers which are unique.
