26/01/2021 – A change of plan! Our exhibition is now set up outside JJ’s and Betts Shoes, beside the mobile phone stand – just down from the Information Desk (not outside Myer as previously advertised) and is really attracting attention. With many interested onlookers from the minute we opened yesterday this exhibition promises to be another success. Lesley Duffin from Finite Gallery at Caves Beach was this year’s judge for the Joe Punshon Silver Palette Award and we appreciate her time and the special comments she left for all the participating artists. Congratulations to Wendy Lesniak for taking out first place with her wonderful pastel ‘Walkway to Eleebana’ – a photo will be posted in coming days. Here is the full list of winners, congratulation to you all!
