Broken Hill Regional Gallery is proud to present Woven Worlds: Ten years of ‘en plein air’ tapestries,
an exhibition of exquisite and finely woven landscape tapestries by Cresside Collette.
The exhibition will open Friday night, 24 July.
Comprising twenty-five small-scale tapestries, the exhibition celebrates the artist’s decade long
journey refining a method of tapestry weaving inspired by the Impressionist tradition of painting
outdoors in the open air or en plein air.

Council seeks to recover rates

Broken Hill City Council will look to recover some $700,000 in unpaid rates through the sale of land.

Mayor Wincen Cuy said it was a last resort by Council in an attempt to recover the unpaid money.
“Council has made numerous efforts to contact owners to give them the opportunity to make payment arrangements. These efforts have failed and as a last resort Council has approved to sell identified properties for unpaid rates and charges.” Mayor Cuy said.
