'Hippy Divas' Exhibition by Portia Stanton-Noble and Pamela Zanker.
This is a joint exhibition presented by two artists who are also good friends. The theme for this exhibition is a celebration of independent women from hippies to Divas. 
Portia has taken a series of photographs from local areas around Springton, Eden Valley and Gumeracha capturing moments set in the past and present, for the future. In a sense this is also a history exhibition. Portia says- “ I have a lot of vintage clothing which I have put to good use for this series, and I enjoy taking photos of people in unexpected situations”.  We all look forward to seeing her work.
Pamelas artwork has been inpired and influenced by many people, among them are “Coco Chanel. Picasso and John Waterhouse.
