Choose your medium for your artwork – watercolour, oils, 3D, sculpture and more are welcome for Rainbow Beach’s first ArtyBall – but make sure you enter by October 5!

The ArtyBall characters of Rainbow Beach event close this Friday October 5, so get your entry to the community centre or Leonie.

The ArtyBall is a twist on the national Archibald prize. Create a portrait of a local in whatever medium the ‘artist’ chooses. If you have someone in mind for your portrait, let them know as soon as possible as it is first in – each person can only be featured once!

All entries will be displayed in the ArtyBall shop, next to Rainbow Realty from Saturday 6 to Friday 19  for public perusal, and, more importantly, for you the public to vote for your favourite.

Votes can be cast via a gold coin donation to the portrait of choice, the winner being the one with the most gold coin value at the end of the two week voting period.

There will be great representations of some of the characters of Rainbow Beach and an opportunity to appreciate the wonderful fabric of our community.

The opportunity to purchase works will be at an auction to be held in conjunction with the ArtyBall Ball in the Hall on Saturday October 20.

Tickets for the Ball, which will feature live music, supper and a bar, are $30 per head and available from the community centre, the ArtyBall shop or Leonie on 0407 529 624 or jayleonie@bigpond.com

Grab a ticket, get a table, style up and come along to celebrate being a part of Rainbow Beach community. All proceeds raised will go to the community centre for community projects.
