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.
