Artworks to raise money for school

ARTISTS are encouraged to submit their works to the Grafton Open Art Exhibition to help raise money for Grafton High School.

The school received a government grant to build a new gym, but it didn't quite cover the cost of a mezzanine floor for a dance and drama studio.

The P&C committee and Fay Boyd of Fay Boyd's Fine Art School have been busy organising the exhibition that will start this weekend.

The official opening is on Friday at 6pm, where winners will be announced. All welcome.

Port Macquarie artist and gallery owner Harold Le Jeune will judge the works.

The exhibition will be open for viewing Saturday and Sunday at the school's multipurpose centre and most works will be up for sale.

All sale profit goes to the school.

To submit a piece to the exhibition, in categories such as paint, drawing, sculpture, wearable art and more, drop your entries off to the Grafton High School multipurpose centre by 4.30pm tomorrow.

Entering an artwork is free. There is prize money for each section.
