Dubbo Art Fair will showcase the work of 40 artists, designers and creators from across the region next month.
The two-day event will be the first of its kind for Dubbo, highlighting the work of creatives in a bid to garner local support across the industry while also supporting those in the entertainment realm.
Among those set to showcase their work will be Dubbo-based self-taught impressionist artist Jacinta Haycock who will be selling an array of paintings along with other goods at the fair.
Mrs Haycock said she usually paints as she sells but has been 'painting madly' to ensure she has enough stock on hand ahead of the weekend event.
"I'm doing a Flowers in a Vase series of A3 paintings, all framed, and quirky "Little Birds", which are also all A3 and framed," she said.
"I will also have a few of my Hunter Home soaps and a small selection of tea towels, most have sold but I have a handful left."
Mrs Haycock said she will also have 20 calendars for 2022 available.
Dubbo-based contemporary Aboriginal artist Lizzy Stageman will also be showcasing her Sweet Rain series at the fair.
"My sweet rain series is an interpretation of rain drops, combined with the colours of the four seasons and what meaning they hold for me , emotionally and spiritually," she said.
"I also have a couple of black and white paintings that are part of an ongoing series of my life's journey through my art and a couple of special pieces which incorporate the campsite symbol which relate to my late grandmother and myself.
"For the release of my new series, I also have limited edition scarves and prints as well the originals."
Other displays include those by Holy's Mural Art, Dairy Hill Designs, Bokhara Dreaming, Leanne Medcalf Art, Judy Shalhoub, QOE Health, Robyn Andrews, Guluu Gallery, Natasha Walker Art, Mandy Pryse-Jones, Eliza Jarman, PJW Crafts, Lizzy Stagemen Art, Laura Holland, Westwing Studio and more.
