It’s the Castlemaine State Festival time again, and like two years ago (when the Newstead Art Salon’s exhibition was titled ‘Spadeworks’), Newstead’s artists are holding a collective exhibition at the Community Centre. Over 100 works were exhibited in the last show, which was extremely successful, so come along during the festival to enjoy an extraordinary diversity of talent and creative artworks.

The formal opening of the exhibition will be on Sunday 19th March, at 2pm. It will be opened by local identities and all round good guys, former Councilor and Mayor Michael Redden and Nick Hudson.
