Upon visiting the Elliston Poetry Room, you may be surprised to find not only poetry, but also paintings by local artists.

James Cummins, curator of the Elliston Poetry Collection, added the art in an effort to “…make [the Elliston Poetry Room] not only a room of poetry, but also a room of art,” he said. “George was a lover and supporter of all art – music, painting, theatre – and in her spirit I wanted to add paintings to accompany the poetry.”
