South West Rocks Rotary Club's art exhibition has officially opened after a prize-giving event was held on Friday afternoon at SWR Public School.
The prestigious event saw the coveted Adelaide Swift Memorial Art Prize awarded to Jen Andrews for A Keen Eye while Myffie Coady won the Highly Commended award with Night Dune.
Julie Hennessy won first prize for drawing with Woodland Dance and Bryce Moran was awarded highly commended in the local indigenous prize for Crescent Head in the Dream-time.
Friday's event attracted 58 exceptional entries from local mid north coast artists across a range of mediums.
The exhibit has been held daily since January 8 and will continue till January 22.
For the first time ever, the exhibition is available online at www.swrartgallery.com.au, an innovative way to open up the potential audience and support regional artists with a permanent online presence.
"I want to give a big thank you to my fellow rotarians, it's been my honour to work with a great team of people," Rotary club treasurer Julie Hennessy said at Friday's presentation.
"They're a great team of people that work tirelessly to raise funds for our community and we have some big projects for the year."
