“It was so great to see such a wonderful turn out and mixture of people at the opening.  Thank you to the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery and Neami for support all the artists involved, it was a wonderful experience.“ said Catherine Pallin.

Mary Allstrom (Regional Manager CAH PIR & SA Psychosocial Programs) said: “The exhibition was a roaring success with a number of the works selling on the night.”

“This exhibition is an important step for Neami and our artists as it reaches a broader audience and validates the importance art plays in a person’s recovery whilst also advocating for more diversity in the arts,” said Vass Hay, Arts Coordinator.
