THE opening night of The Bra Show stopped traffic in Cobargo – literally.
This fibre arts exhibition kicked off with an opening night show at the Lazy Lizard Gallery with a free gig by The Hoops that had people dancing in the street, or in this case on the Princes Hwy.
Over 150 people attended the show, which features an exhibition of decorated bras to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The exhibition was put together by fibre arts group The Frayed Edges of Quaama and included pieces by its members and the wider community.
A raffle was held and drawn on opening night and a second raffle will be drawn at the conclusion of the exhibition.
Frayed Edges founder Cathy Blake was overwhelmed by the response to the show.
“I told the National Breast Cancer Foundation we may raise a few hundred dollars all together, but we raised $310 from the first raffle alone.
“We also thought we had around 40 bras to exhibit, but with a few late entries we’ve ended up with 47.
“People certainly enjoyed the opening, it was a wonderful party,” she said.
“It’s nice to see people dancing in the streets in Cobargo!”
The exhibition will end on June 9 with an auction at 1pm of those exhibited bras that haven’t yet been snapped up.
The Lazy Lizard Gallery is located on the Princes Hwy, Cobargo.
