Mosaics & Beyond auction and exhibition

Mosaics and a miniature town were up for sale on Sunday, at a wonderful exhibition hosted by the Naracoorte Regional Art Gallery.

Taking pride of place in the middle of the exhibition was the Hornabrook family’s miniature replica town of Naracoorte.

The town was later auctioned off piece by piece, with bidders able to own a miniature Presbyterian Church, Naracoorte Hotel, or general store.

There were also plenty of other crafts on display, with the majority being mosaics.

The mosaics came in a range of pieces, such as bird houses, picture frames, and plates.

There were also large golden wreaths, that were perfect for Christmas.

A raffle for a doll’s house received a lot of interest, as the dollhouse came with intricate interiors.

The auction was opened by Robyn Schinckel, and the auctioneer was Graham Brammer. 

The Hornabrook family was given gratitude and thanks for their brilliant efforts, in particular Gill Hornabrook.

Winky Hornabrook read out a delightful story about the miniature town before the bidding began, and reminisced on how the town was created by the family.

All of the money raised from bids and sales went towards Longridge Aged Care. 

About $2000 was raised to go towards Longridge’s services and facilities.
