A BUMPER weekend of art and crafts is planned throughout the King River and Kalgan locales this Saturday and Sunday.

The Lower Kalgan Art Exhibition and King River Hall Textile Exhibition will both take place on September 19 and 20 from 10am to 4pm and feature a range of local artists.

Lower Kalgan Hall Association Secretary Laura Bird said the two event committees had worked together to create a weekend encouraging visitors to make the scenic drive to the area and support artists.

“We want people to make a weekend of it,” she said.

“We have everyone from beginners to more experienced artists, we’ll have Devonshire teas and we have card facilities too.”

Ms Bird said the Lower Kalgan Art Exhibition had been a great opportunity for artistic neighbours to get together and meet for the first time, as well as exhibit together after several months of Covid-cancelled exhibitions.

On display and for sale at the exhibitions will be paintings, photography, textiles, sculptures, glass mosaics, Broome pearl jewellery and various other original works.

The Lower Kalgan Art Exhibition will be held at Lower Kalgan Hall on Nanarup Road and King River Hall is located on Millbrook Road.
