Take the opportunity to check out the brand new Collie Art Gallery with the Collie Collection on show until 11 October, with works from renowned Australian artists Norman Lindsay, Guy Grey Smith, Elizabeth Durack and a host of others. The collection has lain hidden away in storage for many years and finally the collection has found a worthy home in the new Collie Art Gallery.
The next exhibition explores the concept of self with the gallery’s first open and combined art and photography competition, with prizes sponsored by Collie River Valley Marketing.
Artists and photographers are invited to “click” their cameras or “flick” some paint on a canvas and submitting a selfie or self-portrait in any two dimensional medium. Entries close 2 October and finalists are on show 17 October to 29 November 2015.
Bring the whole family along to the gallery’s Open Family Day on Sunday, 1 November 2015, with children’s workshops, sausage sizzle, face painting and lots more.
For more information contact (08) 9734 2921 or visit the Collie Art Gallery’s website. The gallery is open Thursdays-Mondays, 11am-5pm, including public holidays.
