A variety of works by local artists are on display in a makeshift gallery upstairs at Lets Do Coffee.
The Murray Mizfits art group annual exhibition showcases the creativity of nine of its members.
Artist Judi Bilkey, who has been part of the class for five years, said the group was close-knit.
‘‘We’re all eager learners,’’ she said.
Under the tutelage of Kristen Dyer, the group’s members explore their artistic passions and learn new skills.
A psychologist by trade, Ms Bilkey had wanted to join an art group for a long time, but had been too anxious.
Having met Ms Dyer previously, when she learned about her group, she thought she would give it a try.
The Wednesday afternoon classes, run by the Campaspe College of Adult Education, have become known as a ‘‘mental health day’’ for its members.
Ms Bilkey has not looked back since joining the group.
She opened her own art gallery in Elmore in October and, as well as painting, she made naturally-dyed silk clothing.
‘‘I have to pinch myself everyday (about the gallery),’’ she said.
The Murray Mizfits exhibition is open Monday to Friday 7am to 5pm and Saturday 8am to 2pm, until December 30.
