Art Trail captures Bay talent

TIN Can Bay's Inaugural Art Trail on Easter Saturday attracted moderate interest, but was a good experience for organisers, Tin Can Bay correspondent Ken Ferguson said.

"It was a good learning curve for all contributors and if there is to be another art trail next year, they will be better prepared," Mr Ferguson said.

"Hopefully there will be more artists who will come out of the closet to exhibit their skills in whatever art genre they specialise in."

The art trail is not about encouraging more sales for the wonderful pieces of art, but more about spreading the word to other artists.

Mr Ferguson said it was clear the skill and talent of the area's artists was there to be proudly on show.

Two contributors to the art trail, Jill McDonald and Adrienne Hudson, captured the spirit of the event and the imagination of admirers of their artwork.

Also contributing on the day were Robin Hines, Mary Boyd, Elizabeth Sawrey and Terry Tebbett.
