Our Annual Exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery in Bridge Street, held between 24th September and 17th October, gave us a great opportunity to exhibit our art.

The winner of the Northern Rivers Financial Advice Award was Janet Hassall’s  ‘Welcome to an Island’.   A separate prize, also awarded by Northern Rivers Financial advice, was for Margaret Brown’s ‘Emily Gap’.  Special thanks to our sponsor Nick Rose of Northern Rivers Financial Advice for his generous ongoing support over many years  Tel 6624 6622   info@nrfinancial.com.au

Congratulations to our winners and to Marissa Brooks for her judging of the exhibition & appreciation of members’ work. Her comment: “they are all brilliant” making for “a very difficult decision.”
