Once a year, usually in mid-October we open the centre for a weekend so the wider community can join us to appreciate the work completed by our community of artists over the past year. Visitors get to vote for the People's Choice Award where the most popular artwork earns the winning artist a free membership for following year.
Original art works can be purchased from the wide range on display - and all at affordable rates. Purchases can be collected from Sunday afternoon when the exhibition has ended. You can also view the artworks awarded: Best Contemporary Artwork, Best Traditional Artwork, Best Drawing or Print and Best Photograph.
Perhaps exploring painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and calligraphy has been a hobby you are interested in beginning or developing further; we have a wide range of classes, untutored groups and workshops available. And if you are a tutor and would like to run a class or just an enthusiast who would like to lead a group, please get in contact.

Annual Craft and Quilt Sale
Our craft sale is a very popular annual event. There is an extensive range of well-made and fairly priced goods that make excellent Christmas presents or a small treat for yourself.
There are some beautiful quilts on offer which are more expensive because they take many hours of work, with intricate piecing and stitching of quality materials. They do make a beautiful special gift that will last for many years, with some becoming valuable family heirlooms.
Goods can be taken on the day once payment has been made. We have an EFTPOS machine which takes debit cards only.
