Raffle tickets will be available for a multidraw raffle. Proceeds will benefit a local charity, Rockhampton Horse Riding for the Disabled.

"It is a great opportunity for the public to visit the Walter Reid Centre, have a chat with artists manning the exhibition, and see the work by members of Royal Queensland Arts Society, Contemporary Painters, Embroyderers, Potters, Print Makers, Patchworkers and the Artsmob”, Rosslyn McKendry, organizer of the exhibition, said.

The Walter Reid Cultural Centre is a beautiful historical building, owned and operated by Rockhampton Regional Council. It provides a wonderful framework for anyone interested in creative pursuits to be part of or visit local art groups. The building houses many studios and is located on the corner of Derby and East Streets, Rockhampton.
