Opening a huge success!

Well Sunday's opening of the "Affordable and Collectable for Christmas" exhibition was a huge success with an amazing collection of artists work from around the region. With works from as far away as Forster, Mudgee, Dubbo, Canowindra, Millthorpe, Orange and Bathurst, this year's show is proving to be very popular.
Sales have been excellent so far but there is still time to find that particular artwork or sculpture for someone special!

The show was opened by the new Mayor of Cabonne, Mayor Kevin Duffy who gave a rousing speech in support of country arts. The opening was well attended with guests from as far away as America......a grand opening and everybody had a good time!

The new sculpture garden was open and a sculpture sold on the day! So the one you won't see again as it has gone to someone's home for Christmas is pictured here!

"Affordable & Collectable for Christmas"

This month at Jayes Gallery, we will be having our annual "Affordable & Collectable for Christmas" Show with over 50 artworks all under the price of $400.

It is a show that is sure to have something for everyone with a fine collection of new works from our invited regional artists. The works come from as far Wellington, Dubbo, Parkes, Orange, Millthorpe, Canowindra and beyond. It is also a great show to to show the diversity of arts practice in the 'bush', the different styles and subjects that artists draw on for their paintings and art objects.

We have shown here just one of the works "Splash" by artist, Libby O'Neill, that will be for sale in this 'not to be missed' exhibition! 

The show ends on Christmas Eve but works can be taken on the day of sale so that you can have it gift wrapped and ready on the day!

We look forward to seeing you in our gallery! Don't forget to drop into the cafe also and have a look at the work on display there also whilst enjoying a fine dining experience with new cuisine from Chef, Grant!
