Introducing the artists who helped make the Art 4 CFA show such a success - Seymour and District Art Society members Wid Bradley, Ted Gray, Valma Crerar, Trish Dale, Liz Mazurek, Pauline Taylor, Diane Donsdottir, Wendy Webster, Liz Mansfield, Alan Brown, Sarah Hibbert, Lee Stephenson (obscured) and Lynda Robinson.
The Hilldene fire station was transformed into an artists’ paradise over Easter to raise some vital funds.
The Art 4 CFA art exhibition was officially opened in the brigade’s shed base on Thursday night.
Running over the long weekend, the exhibit featured art by 12 local artists, all members of the Seymour and District Art Society with personal links to the CFA.
Each artwork — ranging from pastels to oil and watercolours — was for sale with the commission from each one sold donated to the Hilldene brigade.
A total of 25 works — or about 20 per cent of the exhibition — had been sold and the brigade had benefitted by at least $2300.
CFA board chairwoman Claire Higgins officially opened the exhibition, telling the crowd of more than 200 guests that the event highlighted the important role of the CFA and its volunteers in bringing communities together.
‘‘It’s a unique way of raising funds for the CFA and it is the tireless work of CFA members to get people to come to the event,’’ Ms Higgins told the gathering.
A painting of a firefighter at work by Lynda Robinson was raffled as part of the fundraiser. The winner was from Melbourne. The show was a credit to great organising by Lesley Read, and the Hilldene catering committee, Mitchelton Winery and Yea Cheese provided superb refreshments.
