Some of Craigieburn’s best artists are putting their work on display at the Gee Lee-Wik Doleen Gallery.

The Craigieburn Art Group is displaying the finest works of its members at the exhibition, which opened last week.

Group member Mary Herring said it was hoped the exhibition would encourage more locals to give art a try.

Herring joined the art group 10 years ago after taking art lessons at Selwyn House.

“This is the sort of thing that is needed in Craigieburn,” she said.

“It will be an excellent experience for us and will hopefully encourage art in the community.”

The exhibition will run until May 20.

The gallery is at the Hume Global Learning Centre, 75-95 Central Park Avenue, Craigieburn.
