Bowraville-based not-for-profit Nambucca Valley Phoenix is holding an open day on Saturday November 21 to celebrate its relaunch.

The open day will be held from 10am to 2pm at Phoenix's "The Bank" building at 88 High Street, Bowraville.

"Come join us to celebrate the return of Nambucca Valley Phoenix! Feast your senses in our newly revamped The Bank Gallery & Café and get creative at the new Phoenix School of Arts," said Phoenix Coordinator Pippa Tabone.

Featured in The Bank Gallery will be "Phoenix Rising", a group exhibition of local artists connected with Phoenix. This exhibition will run from Thursday November 19 to Friday December 11, including on the open day.

"The open day will have a wonderful display of local talent in painting, drawing, ceramics, fabric and metal work. Come see artists in action in our arts rooms (the Yurts) and find out more about the new Phoenix School of Arts which is open to people of all ages and abilities," Pippa said.

"The Bank Café will be open and full of fresh, healthy, local delights from salads and slices, juices, smoothies, barista made coffee, cakes and a few sweet treats! We are offering vegan and gluten free options. For those more meat inclined, there will be a sausage sizzle and egg & bacon rolls."

Open day attendees will be entertained by local musicians on stage in the garden.

Nambucca Valley Phoenix is a social enterprise focused on assisting people with disability or disadvantage in the Nambucca Valley.
