A VARIETY of craft items and photos will be on display at the former Evans Shire Council chambers over the weekend. 

These items have all been submitted in the annual Evans Arts Council Craft and Photographic Exhibition and Sale. 

Most pieces have been entered for judging and then sale, while a few others have been entered for the purpose of being displayed and then sold. 

There were six categories people could enter their work in, as well as a juniors section for younger artists. 

Prizes will be awarded following judging to first and second place in each category, all of which have been sponsored by business houses. 

Evans Arts Council president Wendy-Lou Tisdell said there will also be a display of items made by workshop participants. 

“We’ve got a street scene with a bunch of shops our minis [workshop group] have created,” she said.

“We don’t normally have displays, so that is going to be really cool.”

The scene includes various shops such as a cafe and a florist.

The exhibition and sale will be officially opened on Saturday at 10.30am.

Two guests of honour have been invited, original founders Jan Shepherd and Marion Webster. 

Ms Tisdell said having them there will be going back to the council’s roots.

People can view the pieces between 10am and 4pm on Saturday and 10am and 2pm on Sunday.
