ROCKINGHAM Watercolour Society members are busy putting the finishing touches to the paintings they plan to enter at their Annual Exhibition.

Opening on Saturday, November 11, at the Rockingham Art Centre, the exhibition is the highlight of the Society’s year.

Members prepare to bring their latest and best work off their easels and out of their studios to be shown, admired, viewed and purchased by watercolour devotees.

The Opening Night will be presided by Deputy Mayor Deb Hamblin, who is Patron of the Arts for Rockingham. The opening is on Friday, November 10 at 7pm in the gallery of Rockingham Arts Centre.

Open to all and free of charge, the exhibition will continue every day from 10am to 4pm until November 19.

The raffle prize is an original piece of artwork by society member Jane Li.

The exhibition is also an opportunity for the public to get to know more about the Rockingham Watercolour Society, which has been running for 23 years.

Members meet most Fridays in the art studio at the Gary Holland Community Centre, Kent Street.

For more information, call president Peta Heaney on 0427 081 215 or secretary Rose Henry 0413 188 216.
