Gaara Arts (Gaara) members are putting on another exhibition which opens this evening at the Broken Hill Town Hall Facade.  The "Off the Wall" exhibition includes 39 artworks, the works are for sale and I've been told that nothing is priced over $900.

Exhibition hours - Daily 10am - 4pm

I'm in Melbourne so unfortunately I can't make it.  As always, if you can get along to the opening tonight, or the exhibition at some stage, readers would love to hear your comments on what you thought of the exhibition.

The photograph at right is one of the artworks in the exhibition and is of two mosaic mirrors by well known Broken Hill mosaic artist Julie Anne Horsburgh who with her husband Rod, run the fabulous Jarrah Mosaics gallery at - 169 Chapple Street, Broken Hill.

I've visited Jarrah Mosaics and it is well worth adding to your Broken Hill itinerary. The gallery is open daily 10am - 4pm.

I mentioned I'm in Melbourne but it's not all bad as I have a special viewing of the National Gallery of Victoria's Monet's Garden exhibition on tonight, so I won't be totally missing out.

Enjoy, cheers, Jane D
