Art fest in Coraki

Coraki is a top little town. It has a friendly vibe, a big river (the Richmond) and a big old-school pub.

And this weekend it has something else that's special - the 11th Coraki Tea Tree Art Prize, which opens at the Coraki Conference Centre this Friday, October 30, from 7pm. The opening will have entertainment, prize presentations, a light supper and two glasses of wine. (All that for $15!)

The exhibition continues on Saturday between 9am and 5pm and Sunday between 10am and 4pm.

The Coraki Art Prize raffle has the perfect first prize - an instant art collection. This collector's start-up kit is a suite of artworks by five artists with big reputations and Coraki connections. The artists are Joanna Kambourian, Cornelius Delaney, Darren Byrant, John Smith and Shelagh Morgan.

The raffle is drawn on Sunday at 3pm.

So, it'll be an arty blast in Coraki this weekend - the whole town is joining in the spirit of things. There's a fete at the Anglican Church, Trash 'n' Treasure at Coraki Primary School on the Saturday, and a hearty breakfast on the banks of the Richmond River on Sunday morning from 7.30am, thanks to the local Lions Club.
