THE artists of the Upper South Coast Art Association (USCAA) are keeping art alive in our town and will be displaying their best artworks at a showcase exhibition.

The exhibition will be held at the Ocean View Banquet Hall, 305 Guest House (opposite Kingsway Hospital) between 17 and 24 December, from 8.30am to 5pm daily and they would appreciate the support of the public during this period.

“As we are all part of the same community the artworks will appeal to locals, as well as our treasured visitors from the interior. The beauty of this exhibition is that there is a restaurant on the premises and it serves mini meals and the coffee shop will be open until 3.30pm every day,” said Patricia McCann, USCAA chairperson.

McCann said they are delighted that the art exhibition will be opened by the respected Charlotte Dickinson.

To top this, music will be supplied by Marianna Erickson, a Russian violinist.

“Marianna has incredible musical ability and this will be an occasion that will be remembered well into the future. Our artists will display portraits, landscapes, seascapes, flowers, abstract and wildlife, among other subjects. Varying mediums used include oils, acrylics, water colours and pastels,” McCann stated.

The exhibition promises to have something that appeal to everybody's taste in collectable artworks. Wonderful miniatures will be on sale as well. Parking is available on site.
The association will also support two charities - Jabulani and Gods Treasure Chest. The public are invited to bring their friends and families to enjoy the artworks, food and the view.
