Mr GRIFFIN (Bruce) (16:29): I draw the attention of the House to the recent Noble Park art show, which had its 10th birthday celebration at the Noble Park Community Centre. The opening was on Friday, 9 October, but it was an exhibition over that weekend. This is a really impressive local exhibition of art work within the local community, and it has been growing over that 10-year period in a very impressive way. I have had the privilege of attending on several occasions now and seeing just how talented many of the people in the local area are with respect to art.

It is not only schools that are involved; it is also individuals, and some of those individuals have gone on to exhibit professionally. It really highlights the fact that there are a lot of people locally who are very skilled. I, for one, who basically have no skills when it comes to art, was in awe of many of the presentations there.

In total, there were nearly 150, I think—no, more than that. At the end of the day, there were somewhere in excess of 300 actual presentations as part of the overall display. It was a great opportunity to meet local residents and a great opportunity to see the skills on display, and it is something that the community of Noble Park should be very proud of.
