Mr MORTON (Tangney) (13:43): The Alfred Cove Art Society's Annual Awards of Excellence art exhibition is on again in my electorate beginning this weekend. This will be the 19th year this fantastic local exhibition will be showcasing artists in my local area. More than 80 paintings by talented artists will be on display this year. Hundreds of people from Tangney and across Perth will be visiting Atwell House, on the Canning Highway, over the next week to view and buy these paintings from award winning artists. Prizes for particularly excellent works will be awarded by the judging panel. These prizes are being sponsored by local businesses in my community. For this year's event I'll be sponsoring the Tangney award, which will go to the best painting based on a feature or landscape in Tangney. The opening night next week will be a fantastic event, but I sadly will miss it because of parliament's sitting. I am looking forward, however, to visiting the exhibition when I get home and to meeting the winner of the inaugural Tangney award. Last year I managed to purchase a very special painting by Rosemary Seal that is now proudly hanging in my electorate office. Thank you to president Jenny Tunnacliffe, the committee and the Alfred Cove Art Society's talented members for putting on this special event once again for the 19th year.
