The annual exhibit, titled And it was very Good, encourages artists to celebrate the goodness of God’s creation.

The event, now in its sixth year, has become popular with local artists and has a good record in sale of works.

Organisers received positive feedback from artists and the public for last year’s efforts.

Curator and artist Val Brooks said they attracted a range of entries from lower priced work to those from more renowned artists across Perth.

‘We get a lot of people from the general public as well as the church community come along,’ she said. ‘It’s quite widely advertised and we put signs out so that we get people coming in off the street signs as well.’

The exhibit will be officially opened by Joondalup MLA Jan Norberger on April 9 and will be open to the public from April 10 to 12 at the St Mary Magdalene’s Anglican Church on Lysander Drive.

Those interested in submitting work are asked to send digital images to Mrs Brooks by March 20 at brooks_val@hotmail.com.
