Jindabyne Lions Club invites entries for its Easter Art Show & Sale.
This annual event showcases our region’s wonderful artistic talents. The show is held in the Jindabyne Memorial Hall at the end of Town Centre opposite the Lake Jindabyne Hotel, and will run from Thursday March 29 to Saturday April 7, 2018.
Autumn is a seasonal bonus for artists, as like clockwork, the colours of red and gold are in full swing as Winter approaches. Days are sunny and nights cool, and the scenery can’t help but be inspirational to one and all, especially those with artistic talents.
With such a range of entries the opportunity exists to become an art collector of any level. Excellent artwork is displayed and is usually snapped up quickly, providing great encouragement for our local artists, not to mention an appreciating income. A maximum selling price of only $1,500 is set, and most are in the $300 to $500 price range. Some artists sell all of their work, so it really is a case of get in early or you might miss out. One happy buyer commented as he loaded his purchase into his car, “I can’t believe it, I bought this for $600 and it would have cost me $6,000 from a gallery in Sydney”.
Opening Night Gala Evening
Launch day is a busy day, the Mitre 10 Jindabyne Opening Night Gala starts at 7pm on Thursday 29 March. Opening Night is always a highly anticipated “frock-up” event with the announcement of prize winners and the chance for visitors and residents to catch up with friends over a drink or two. Supper is catered for by the ladies of Jindabyne CWA. At $15.00 entry, it’s excellent value for money.
