Penny Paniz Art Exhibition
Penny Paniz was a passionate and gifted local artist, who motivated and inspired people to pursue their artistic talents. After her passing the Penny Paniz Art Prize was established in 2012 in honour of Ms. Paniz memory and to showcase artistry, promote art and increase local awareness of art in Leeton and the wider community.
