Soapie stars show off painting skills

Illawarra Mercury

18 June 2005

THEY are pretty handy in front of the camera, but how do they fare behind the easel?

That question will be answered at Stockland Shellharbour this morning when some of Australia's best-loved entertainers put themselves in the picture for Art by Celebrities.

Starting at 10.30am, Tim Campbell (Dan in Home & Away), Conrad Coleby (Scott in All Saints and new drama Headland), and Bardot's Belinda Chapple will use paint and canvas to create one-off celebrity masterpieces for children's charity William Campbell House.

All paintings, including contributions from Home & Away stars Isabel Lucas (Tasha) and Kate Ritchie (Sally), will be auctioned at a fundraising dinner tonight at Shellharbour Workers Club.

William Campbell House operations manager, Daniel Bennett, said the auction would also include Australian sporting memorabilia.

"We've got a one-day cricket shirt signed by Ricky Ponting, an Andrew Gaze basketball singlet and a signed Greg Norman photo. All of them are framed," Mr Bennett said.

A number of collectors' items from boxer Kostya Tszyu and a limited edition Wallabies jersey will also go under the hammer.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to William Campbell College, a registered charity providing care for abused, neglected and homeless children.

Tickets to tonight's dinner can be purchased for $100 each, which includes a three-course meal and drinks, live entertainment and an address from retired children's magistrate Barbara Holborrow.

Some tickets for the event are still available and can be purchased by phoning William Campbell College on 4237 5566.
