    One exhibition each year is for our Members to participate and display their artwork. This year the exhibition is not the last for 2018, therefore the theme for the members’ show asks members to be inspired by concepts of beginnings, endings and the in-between or any other interpretations of the phrase “This is not the end”.  The exhibition also has a $1,000 non-acquisitive art prize. Exhibition Opening 6pm 28 September 2018
