Meet some of our volunteers

"I enjoy helping to organise the Annual Youth Award Exhibition. Each year brings an exciting collection of artworks from many wonderfully talented High School students. 

The Award Presentation Night is always very special with many students coming together to receive their prizes. This is a "must see" exhibition, held in June each year."

"I have been volunteering at Melville Arts @ Atwell House and enjoy the sense of community. As an artist myself I feel nurtured and supported and enjoy giving back to the arts community. 

You will see me at the precinct in the gallery & gift shop. I have made new friends through volunteering and as a very private person feel at home when I am here."
