Paint Pot Gallery welcome you along to re-opening at new beachfront location
AS everyone has witnessed the gradual demolition of the old church building in Beaman Park, some have been wondering what happened to The Paint Pot Gallery.
Well - as you walk along the beach front past 12 Anzac Parade which is situated in between the Lure Living and The Strand Bottle Shop, you will find them.
To celebrate their re-opening, an afternoon tea will be held on the grassy patch out front on Saturday afternoon, March 4 at 2pm.
Although the venue is much smaller than previously enjoyed by the group, the displays continue to offer the great range of paintings, pottery, silver jewellery, cards and textiles to add to your collection or as a gift for others.
The venue is a short term one and members of The Capricorn Society of Arts Inc. welcome the opportunity to continue to have a space to display their work. Members are all local artists and continue the legacy of the original group who established it 47 years ago.
To mark the occasion, the five potters namely, Cindi Birch, Denise Mercer, Lin White, Gill Whitworth and Tricia Greinke, have put together a collection of special pieces entitled, Along Different Lines.
The collection will be the feature throughout March.
All five potters have been long standing members of the group and their work is individual and unique with a combination of hand built and wheel creations.
Over the years, their work has become part of many local collections as well as travelling all over Australia plus overseas.
The group look forward to welcoming regular customers back along with other new friends of the gallery.
