The quality of art pieces just keeps getting better and better at Deniliquin’s Rotary Easter Art Show, which was open to the public across the Easter break.

About 300 entries were submitted into the exhibition this year from local district talents.

Edward River Arts Society member Jan Harris said this year’s art show certainly delivered.

‘‘I was really impressed with the variety of the artworks in the show this year.

‘‘What I like is that we have sections including landscape and portraits but it’s wonderful that they are all different and their own interpretation.

‘‘We had less entries than last year but this meant that rather than previous years where the hall has been quite cluttered, this year the artworks were well spaced so that everyone could properly appreciate them.

‘‘I would like to thank the team who did the lighting in the hall. It was done very well and served the artworks justice.

‘‘This year was the first time that we included the outdoor area as part of our display area. The metal sculptures were featured in this area.

‘‘We are pretty happy with how the competition turned out. We ended up having a couple of locals who won major prizes.

Local winners included: ‘End of Season Bud’ won Best Local by Jan Harris; ‘Rock On’ was the raffle which was won by Carolyn Wheatley; and the Viewers’ Choice was ‘A Bag of Fruit’ by Glenn Hoyle who lives in Langwarrin.
