Narrabri Arts and Craft Society held a ‘Pink-Up Verandah Saturday’ fundraiser on October 16 which saw the venue dressed up in pink and gave members and locals an opportunity to contribute towards Karen Kirkby’s ‘Pink up Namoi’ month.
President Judy Michell was delighted with the community response to the day.
“The tree out the front of the shop looked splendid with its pink flowers for all to see.
“Generous members gave of their items, including art in the gallery, and donations from monies received are going to the McGrath foundation.
“Pink dots have been placed on items for donations to the cause, including art in the gallery.
“For this we thank our members for their generous help,” Mrs Michell said.
“A donation jar has been included for additional donations.
“We had a good roll up of people to peruse our wares in the shop and make their purchases.
“The art gallery was open with many paintings for sale with donations to go towards ‘pink’.
“A bonus viewing in the gallery was the travelling suitcase exhibition display, which is residing in the Narrabri gallery until October 29.
“This is an annual display which travels from town to town showing crafted items from a Sydney embroidery group, the Australian Textile Arts and Surface Design Association (ATASDA).
“A broken pink china mosaic workshop with Janice Smith was also in progress.
“Half of the costs of the class were donated to ‘Pink’.
“The Art and Craft Society was very pleased with the Pink Saturday morning, with $310 raised.
“A big thank you must go to those who came and purchased items, also to the members who gave of their time to man the shop during the morning.”
