The Rochester Fine Art Exhibition opens tonight at Rochester Shire Hall, and with more than 350 exhibits by 40 artists it is not to be missed.
Exhibition organiser Judy Anderson said three artists would speak, along with comedian and former Lockington resident Monica Dullard who will perform.
‘‘Then we have our feature artist Pete Conroy, sculptor Richard Yates who created the sculptures outside the (Rochester) hospital, and Rob Milton who is the official artist for the Invictus Games. Rob is an incredible military artist so we are thrilled he could make it along with all our guest speakers,’’ Mrs Anderson said.
A ticket to the opening night will also get you into the exhibition through the week.
Tickets are just $15, which includes food and drink, with proceeds going to Rochester and Elmore District Health Service.
Now in its sixth year, the exhibition will also feature the announcement of the Rochybald Prize.
The Rochybald exhibition was open for anyone who wanted to submit their work, Mrs Anderson said.
This year’s theme is ‘My hero’. All works will be displayed and will be for sale during the exhibition.
In conjunction with the Rochester Fine Art Exhibition, a multi-course Greek dinner will be prepared by guest chef Daniel Spizzica. Friday’s Rochester Fine Art Exhibition Dinner will also include a fine art auction.
Tickets are $75 and there are limited seats available.
The exhibition opening is at Rochester Shire Hall, 45 MacKay St, tonight at 7pm.
The Greek dinner is at Rochester Wine Tavern, 49 Moore St, on Friday, April 27 at 7pm.
