The Art Fair was officially opened by Toby Meagher, Director Michael Reid Galleries, on Friday night at the Western Plains Cultural Centre.
It was wonderful to see so many people supporting this amazing event and taking advantage of the opportunity to appreciate the work of so many of our local artists.
Well done to Dubbo Regional Council, the Western Plains Cultural Centre team and all the artists that participated - I look forward to 2024!
IN OTHER NEWS:
October is Mental Health Month, and the theme this year was 'We All Have a Role to Play'.
It's about an opportunity to understand the importance of good mental health in everyday life by encouraging us to think about out mental health and well-being as well as thinking about the ways that you connect with the people around you.
Promoting genuine connections and conversations about mental health is what Dubbo Cares Day is all about.
Thank you to organiser, Jo Efoti, for putting on a great event that certainly did provide the opportunity for anyone attending to start a conversation about having a chat and enjoy a cuppa and either brekky or lunch.
