Mayor of The Hills Shire, Councillor Yvonne Keane, joined Minister for Corrections, Emergency Services and Veteran Affairs David Elliott MP in officially opening Castle Hill Arts Society’s latest exhibition, Lifetime Memories.
The exhibition features works from 21 artists and focuses on the theme of memories, including places art society members have visited, their country of birth or special stories they hold dear to their hearts.
Mayor Keane said she was honoured she could be part of opening celebrations.
“I am delighted that many of the artworks on show are from local artists, who are residents of The Hills Shire,” Mayor Keane said.
“I am so proud of the creativity we have on tap in our Shire and no doubt each of these artists dedicated many hours of manual labour into these beautiful pieces.
“I’d also like to thank these incredible members for making these works available to the community and adding to the vibrancy of our region,” Mayor Keane added.
The exhibition will raise funds for NSW Police Legacy and will remain open until Sunday, October 9 at the Castle Glen Community Centre at 155 Ridgecorp Drive, Castle Hill.
Mayor Keane said she encouraged residents to make a special trip to the exhibition.
“I think there’s something for everyone in the collection. There’s beautiful artistry and there are objects that would stir the imagination,” she said.
“I also encourage everyone to dig deep and support NSW Police Legacy which provides generous support to all police families who have suffered a loss through services, benefits and advocacy.”
