AN exhibition showcasing artwork by members of the Heathcote community is on display at Allan's Walk Shops 6 & 7.

"Splash-paint me" includes impromptu paintings by members of the general public who may not have had painting experience.

Participants were given a short amount of time to make their mark on a canvas, using acrylic paints and other materials, including found objects.

People worked collaboratively to produce the final products - colourful painted canvases with contributions from many people. The project was a Heathcote Community House initiative and was funded by the City of Greater Bendigo.

Mari Basile, from Heathcote Community House, said the project was about providing participants with and a sense of enjoyment and achievement and "some extra bonding time with friends and colleagues".

Participants included local members of the State Emergency Service.

The exhibition will run until July 25.
