About 80 people attended the opening of Studio 2710’s exhibition at the Multi Arts Centre on Thursday.
The exhibition was open for just two days, and showcased the work of local people with a disability.
International Day of People with a Disability was Monday last week, while the exhibition was held over Thursday and Friday.
The opening included an awards ceremony with the Deniliquin International Day of People with a Disability committee.
Debbie Wills received the community involvement award, while Julie Collier received the employment award.
The carer award went to Andrea Smith, the sporting award to Nicholas O’Connor, and Daryl Whateley was given the volunteer award for his work with the Deniliquin Community Transport Group.
The event also included a silent art auction and free barbecue lunch both days.
Studio 2710 started earlier this year, and involves local tutors working in the mediums of visual arts, photography, music and drama, sharing their knowledge with local disabled people.
