THE best of the best of the Red Point Artists will be on display at an upcoming exhibition in Port Kembla.

It will be the first major exhibition held by the group in a number of years, with an independent curatorial panel set to decide what will be on show.

"When TAFE funding was cut, we focused on employing some of the art teachers from TAFE and getting them to run art classes," Red Point Artists secretary Wynne Gibson said.

"Now that our classes have settled down a bit we want to get back to what we used to do in exhibiting the works of our members."

Red Point members have been invited to submit works, but inclusion is not guaranteed.

"We want this to be the best of the best of what our members have to offer, which is why we have the independent panel," Ms Gibson said.

"So far we've got 40 submissions, but I think we'll end up with somewhere closer to 80.

"As far as the number of exhibits go it could be anything, if the panel says all 80 are good enough then all 80 could be on display.

"Our members produce excellent works across a number of mediums, so we could have anything from sculptures, to contemporary art, genuine Aboriginal art, real art photography or ceramics."

The exhibition will be held at the Red Point Gallery, Wentworth Street, Port Kembla. It starts on Saturday at 2pm and will be open daily from 10am-4pm until July 12.
