An initiative for those who work, live or play in the Yarra Ranges region, Not the Archies is a celebration of creative talent in the local area. Over August and September this year, the council asked Yarra Ranges locals to paint (or draw, sketch, weave, collage!) a portrait of someone they admire in the local community.
The council received over 235 entries across a number of categories, spanning children through to adults. This week, the finalists, commended and winning pieces were announced (a full list can be viewed on the Yarra Ranges Council website).
The best news? The submitted pieces will be on display throughout Yarra Glen and Healesville until the 15th of November. You can also vote for your favourite piece in the Audience Choice Awards!
