There are more than 50 paintings on display from many talented local artists in this year’s small paintings and miniatures exhibition. The exhibition is well worth a look and the artworks are very good value for money. If you have a friend or family member who likes fine art, there are many value for money pieces available that would make great Christmas presents.
The exhibition runs from 13 Nov 2020 through 14 Jan 2021.
Running concurrently with this exhibition are the Nov 2020 Members General Exhibition and the Members 3D general exhibition. Both these exhibitions also feature well priced pieces that would make great gifts.
The monthly members exhibition that follows this one is Jan 2021 Flora & Fauna Exhibition commencing 15 Jan 2021.
