THE CORAKI Art Prize opens this Friday, October 26, at 6.30 pm at the Coraki Conference Centre, despite principal organiser Melva Thompson being struck down by a stroke last month.
There will be food, wine, live music and fine art - all for $15 a head.
The show continues over the weekend (October 27-28) at two venues: The Coraki Conference Centre, on Union Street, and Brandon Hall, on Queen Elizabeth Drive.
With more than $9500 in prize money on offer, over 300 entries are expected across eight categories.
