Believe it or not, it is nearly the long weekend in June again!

We are aiming for a great Art Exhibition again this year. The closing date for entries is Friday, May 24, 2019.

The Porcelain section has been discontinued this year after many years of successful exhibitions.

It is indeed sad that this is no longer, but with less artists exhibiting and fewer taking up the art, entries declined.

We will again have for sale the Garden Sculptures, made by John Grady and his wife Rhonda, from Trundle.

This is the third year John has been supporting our Art Exhibition with his "sculptures" and they have been selling well.

John began making garden art in 2006 when their garden was open to the public.

All artwork is from metal or recycled fencing wire, plain and barbed.

He endeavours to make all his artwork to look like real plants, birds or animals and most art is life size.

John has won categories in the Waste to Art exhibitions for a number of years now.

Pieces of his artworks are on display at the Parkes Library.

This year we will also have exhibiting "Exclusive Hot Glass" by Elaine Marshall from West Wyalong.

All glassware is made from imported glass from America.

Fused and slumped plates, platters, bowls and vases are made to make the most unique gifts.

Jewellery is also made from dichroic glass into pendants, rings, earrings and cufflinks, all one-off pieces.

All pieces on exhibition will be for sale.

The Photography Competition will be in the Hub this year and entry into the Art will also get you into the Photography Exhibition.

For further information, please contact the Henry Lawson Festival Art Coordinators, Di Griffiths on 6343 2468 or Hugh Moffitt on 6343 1424.
