Artists flocked to Rochester at the weekend in preparation for an art exhibition on Saturday and Sunday.

The Rochester Art exhibition, which will open on Friday night and run through to Sunday, will showcase talent from the region and as far away as Sydney.

Curator Judy Anderson said tickets for the opening night were still available to buy for $20 at Baker’s Newsagency.

The ticket will include supper and wine and all proceeds will go to the refurbishment of Rochester and Elmore District Health Service hostel.

Mrs Anderson said Friday night was a good opportunity for art collectors to get first dibs on paintings, which would all be available to buy.

Bendigo painter Ben Winspear said he was still looking for a model for his live oil painting demonstration on Saturday morning.

The model will be able to purchase the oil painting with money raised going to the hostel renovation.

To purchase tickets or pose for the oil painting, phone Mrs Anderson on 0408505373.
