Clarence Valley Independent

Art Club Exhibition


Grafton Art Club recently held their 50th art exhibition at The Barn in The Showground, during Jacaranda week.

We can only stage this large art show each year because of the generous donations from our sponsors.

Through your newspaper, can we please thank our sponsors:

The Bendigo Bank, Clarence Valley Council, Westlawn Finance, The Grafton Regional Gallery, McLennan Earthmoving, Tracks End Retreat, Harris Burridge & Flynn, Friendlies Chemist, Bentleg Markets, Chris Gulaptis M.P., Kevin Hogan M.P., Ken Casson Motors, Grafton Shopping World News agency, Grafton Shopping World Management, Grafton Wellbeing, Clarence Valley Independent, Daily Examiner, 2GF, Life 103.1FM, Flowers By Bonnie, Grafton District Services Club, Book Warehouse, Skizza’s, Judy & Doug Eggins, Rhondella Hyde, plus some anonymous donations.

We would also like to thank the public who came to see the exhibition, some from as far afield as Brisbane and Adelaide.

Numbers through the door swelled by approximately 200 on the last day due to the Tafe Markets moving to The Showground.

There is currently another, different exhibition to celebrate Grafton Art Club’s 50 years, called “Golden Era” from members past and present, in the loft space at The Grafton Regional Gallery and it will be on through the New Year until February 3. 

On behalf of our committee and members, thank you again to all concerned.

Anne Carter,
Secretary Grafton Art Club Inc.

Now you’re here …

… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.

If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it. For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
