My blog is all about the famous outback Australian National Heritage Listed City named Broken Hill, located in the state of New South Wales. I first visited #BrokenHill in 2002 and have returned many times since then. ilovebrokenhill.com will help you discover what's great about this historic mining city, where in the mid 1880's the line of lode, a rich ore body of silver, lead and zinc was found. You will find stories about anything related to Broken Hill.

Last night Lifeline opened it's annual Lifeline Broken Hill fund raising art exhibition. The exhibition will run from 27 June to 13 July 2014.

The exhibition, in it's 25th year this year, is once again being held at the Albert Kersten Mining and Minerals Museum also known as the GeoCentre.

There are 110 pieces in this year's exhibition and prices range from $75 to $1,200 (only 1 piece is over $1,000). Forty artists have entered works in the exhibition.

Address:     2 Bromide Street, Corner Silver City Highway (Crystal Street).

Hours: 1pm - 4.45 pm Saturday and Sunday, 10 am - 4.45 pm Monday to Friday.

Entry to the exhibition is by donation.

Artists are allowed to enter up to four paintings, which must be original works, suitably mounted for hanging and available for sale. Generally 25% of the profits from items sold will go to Lifeline, and the remaining amount will go to the artist.

It is a very worthwhile cause so do try and go along and support the wonderful work of Lifeline.

This year, as in other years, there will be some great art. I went to the exhibition several years ago and was lucky enough to attend the opening night which was a lot of fun.

Queries to Lifeline Broken Hill's office - telephone (08) 8087 7525,
194 Argent Street.

You can also donate to Lifeline directly from their website www.lifeline.org.au.

Please note you can call Lifeline for crisis support 24/7 on 13 11 14.

Cheers, Jane Deany
