Operation Art Exhibition was launched at Cowra Library yesterday and runs until 26 February 2011. Guests included Art Gallery director Brian Langer, 30 teachers from around the region attending a workshop and other visitors. Councillor Ian Brown and one of the young artists called Lachlan (named after the Lachlan River) handed over art works to Cowra Hospitals' Pauline Rowston. Lachlan is pictured with his artwork titled Fergus (the dog). Operation Art is an annual exhibition of children's art from schools throughout NSW created for the Childrens Hospital, Westmead. Children create their artworks knowing that they will be appreciated by sick children in hospital and their families. It is an initiative of The Childrens Hospital at Westmead, the NSW Department of Education and Training and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, in partnership with The Nelson Meers Foundation. So come along and see 50 fantastic works of art.
