    Saturday, 13 August, National Bookshop Day, will be the day the final prize, the┬áPeople’s Choice, is announced. We were planning to include all Instagram likes as votes for each piece, but we haven’t managed to get the entire exhibition on yet, so we’ll have to just go with the votes in the box to be fair to all. Meanwhile, we will continue to post the remaining works in the exhibition on Instagram until they’re all there! We have shortlisted the top five for you already:

    Rita Summers, The Making of Mary Mordaunt

    Ian McColl, A Particular Attitude

    Belinda Joynes, On the Trail of Women Warriors

    Madeleine Peters, Narrative Gradient

    Finn Radley, Leaping Through the Pages

    Sunday, 14 August is also the final day for the BiblioArt exhibition.
    The next exhibition will be brought to you by Customs House Gallery (Hawkesdale).

    We are delighted to be able to offer this exciting workshop to Port Fairy! This Sunday, 14 August 2016, 1pm to 4pm.


    Using creative and meditative exercises, you will develop an artistic vision and gain some practical awareness around what you need to do to achieve your creative intentions and goals, no matter how big or small. This will involve writing, visual journaling, painting or clay work to get you on your way. Your guide, artist Catherine Bailey, works from her own experience, after learning the Atelier Studio Method at the National Art School, from her involvement with the work of Jungian therapist, Sally Gillespie, and meditative practices and techniques handed down from her Qi Gong teacher, Li Ying. Please bring a dream – from sleep or reality, a visual diary, and brushes and paints if you have them.

    $45 concession, $65 adult.
