The paintbrushes of Ballina are flying feverishly in preparation for the art society’s annual exhibition next month.
Held at the Ballina RSL on May 24, 25 and 26, the free exhibition will feature artists from across the Northern Rivers.
The paintings will include figurative pieces, seascapes and abstracts, and all will be for sale, with the proceeds going to support the Ballina Art Society.
There will also be a silent auction section this year entitled Under the Weather.
‘The artists from Ballina Art Society meet weekly with tutors at the Ballina Scout Hall, in a supportive learning environment,’ says the society’s Vice President Helen Craig.
‘Members travel, from Lismore, Byron, and Tweed shires to attend our group – which has been meeting for over 60 years – and exhibit yearly.’
The exhibition will open on May 24 at 6pm with an opening night event MC’d by Echonetdaily’s own Mandy Nolan.
