Comments from Mayor Bill Chisholm

There is a lot of artistic talent in Mitchell Shire and Council is very pleased to be showcasing it.
Mayor Bill Chisholm

We’re excited to be encouraging local artists and providing them a place locally to display their work.

I look forward to seeing what’s on display from both established artists and young people just starting out.

It is great to see this space activated once again. I hope to see more exhibitions taking place into the future and would encourage community groups to present ideas regarding the better utilisation of this area. It has huge potential as a community asset.
