The 15th annual Spring Arts Exhibition was held last Friday night, with 49 works from different artists on display.

Many prizes were handed out with a $1200 cash prize included, awarded to Carmen McFaull for her piece titled Indulgence.

Artist Lynley Lally also had a successful night, winning multiple prizes including the Shire of Manjimup award.

Real gold flakes were used on her piece called On A Golden Pond to create the final effect.

“I picked up a nine carat gold leaf in Venice, which is now in this painting” she said.

“The reflections in the painting are inspired by Monet, and I only used a spatula to paint it, no brushes at all.”

All the artists displayed had a great chance to show off and sell their favourite piece of work.

The exhibition will be open until October 6.
