This is a new initiative to me, but I think it has been going on in the community for quite a while and there is great opportunity to find out more about it this Saturday the 6th of June 2015 when you can join a guided walking tour meeting at West End Community House, 4 Norfolk Street, West End at 1.30pm for 2.00pm departure – with curator, Susan Ostling and local historian and Community Plus committee member, Tim Quinn.

What Trace does is make art available to the wider pubic outside the usual forums of art galleries and exhibition halls. It does this every two years, so this is a good opportunity to see what this is all about. In fact it enables you, and every member of the community to enjoy art often created by a large number of local artists in a variety of different venues, from your local grocer's shop, to the barbers, book shops and record shops along many venues in Boundary St and Vulture St in West End.
The exhibition is on until the 9th of June and people can bid on the art up until 9pm on June 12th. The funds raised go to supporting the vital work of the Community House. It is a fantastic way to get your art work and also support a good cause.
