It was all smiles for MacKillop student Lili Carter as she took delivery this week of a Dean Mobbs artwork from the artist and Bathurst Mayor, Gary Rush.

Dean’s painting was the lucky door prize at the recent waste to Art exhibition at BMEC for anyone who voted in the People’s Choice award.

The local waste 2 Art exhibition attracted 164 visitors with the standard of this year’s exhibits at an exceptional level.

Organiser Alison Thompson from Bathurst Council said the exhibition had some fantastic artworks which will go on to the Regional Exhibition being held by Lachlan Shire Council and starting in Condobolin on June 25.

The winner of the People’s Choice Artwork was Ken Beddie with his artwork “Vince, the 5 O’Clock Shadow” this was judged by the number of votes over the exhibition period.
