Getting festival-ready

The whole town is abuzz in preparation for this weekend’s Festival of the Miner’s Ghost and Running on Empty Festival. Cobar Arts Council members were busy on Sunday at the Cobar Railway Station, receiving and hanging entries for their annual Art and Photography Exhibition. Traditionally the first event on the festival calendar, the exhibition is now open for viewing with the official opening and prize presentation held last night. Pictured are Arts Council volunteers Lillian Simpson, Beverley Anderson and Kylie Harvey preparing the entries.
