Community's artistic talent goes on show

A MIXED bag of artwork will make up this year's Yanco Agricultural High School art and photography exhibition, with pieces being described as ranging from "kooky" to "traditional".

A variety of work will be on show from many mediums, including oils, pastels, modern mixed media, drawing, water colour, sculpture and photography.

Students from YAHS, St Francis College and Leeton High School will have items in the exhibition, with artists from the community also encouraged to submit their own work whether it be professional or amateur.

The art show is held each year at the school and is a fund-raiser for the P&C.

YAHS art teacher Scott McGrevy was looking forward to showcasing student and community talent.

"There'll definitely be a mix of works," he said.

"There's everything from student work, which is vibrant and fun, to more professional pieces.

"We would love work to come in from the wider community."

Each category will have a winning entry, as well as the overall acquisitive prize winner.

Judging this year will be in the hands of Jenny Newbound, with band Mostly Blues, led by John Collins, providing entertainment during the opening night.

Department of Education and Communities Riverina regional director Colin Parker will officially open the exhibition.

A family fun day will be held following opening night.

The exhibition will be held at McCaughey Mansion from September 7 to 9.
