Every year we host the OFFCUTS Show, which as the name suggests is a show created from the off cut canvas and stretcher bars from the previous year. These mini canvases are distributed to local artists with proceeds from the sale of works being donated to charity.
Like many a good idea, OFFCUTS art exhibition was the lovechild of a mistake and a lemonade making attitude. "The boys cut a whole lot of stuff for a big job but got the size wrong," says Don. "We ended up with heaps of 20 by 20cm frames." So they distributed the bit sized canvases to local artist friends, had a party and sold them to raise money for local charities. Now in its ninth year, it's the mistake that keeps giving. - Anna Dowd, Off the Leash Magazine
The next Offcuts show will be in 2016. Our tenth year!
