Busselton's Mitchell Park comes alive with colour for 60th Art in the Park

Busselton Art Society celebrated their 60th Art in the Park exhibition from January 25 to 27.

More than 300 works were on display in Mitchell Park. Many pieces were sold at the event, which acts as a major fundraiser for the society. 

Founded in April 1959, the society held its first Art in the Park the following year.

More than 90 pieces were on show, ranging in price from two to 10 guineas.

Today, the society has grown from its then 49 members to boasting more than 100 art lovers.

The 2019 Art in the Park featured entries from 33 artists.

The event included a kids art corner, artist demonstrations, a wood turning display and a belly dancing performance.

All artworks were one-off originals and prizes were awarded for a variety of categories.
