Singleton Art prize 2011-2017
Singleton Art Prize, sponsored by many local businesses large and small including us, the singleton rotary and many other contributors, that help make it one of the most outstanding regional exhibitions.
We sponsor the peoples choice award.
I spend many hours setting up a display of some of the things we do, which both promote us and add to the aesthetics of the exhibition.
For our Original Grain watch collection launch, as a thank you for purchasing, we had a Black Gate Whiskey & Hunter Beer Co. give away for Fathers Day 2018.
https://www.blackgatedistillery.com/ located near Dubbo – Their spirits are made to drink neat which is not for the inexperienced, however, adding a little water or ice can bring out hidden flavours and tame the alcohol. Cask BG 022 was a first fill ex port cask; the spirit was made from Aussie pale malt that was lightly smoked in an old (converted) Ajax wool press. The malt was gristed, mashed and brewed on site before being double distilled in a direct fired copper pot still.
http://www.hunterbeerco.com/ located in Pokolbin – They make a large range of beers with a huge range of colours, aromas and flavours.
Little Bit of Italy in Broke

World Famous Diamond Collection (2012)
A showcase of masterpiece replicas of the world’s most famous diamonds. This collection was only display for a limited time in the June-July of 2012.
Famous for their colour, size and history, exhibitions have been shown around the world, presented with a full program and documentary, we were able to bring this exhibition to Singleton (after a lot of work and expense on our part).
To see the diamonds that have been replicated for this exhibition, you would have to travel to museums in America, England, France, Germany, Turkey, Iran and more – such as the Natural History Museum, Tower of London, Louvre Museum, the Smithsonian, and Green Vault of Dresden, to name a few. Some replicas are in permanent displays and the full collection travels.
Indeed, even that wouldn’t be enough, as some of the wonderful stones on display have been lost to history, such as the 90ct Nassak, the 140ct Florentine and the 242ct Great Table diamonds.
An invitational preview with food and wine supplied by a local restaurant.
A comprehensive (the biggest collection most people will ever see) exhibition of pearl strands and jewellery that was hosted over the month of August.
This was a limited opportunity that was certainly not to be missed (and certainly wasn’t) to see, feel, try-on and learn about pearls. It was held in conjunction with one of Australia’s best and well-established pearl merchants, who has been dealing with growers and markets for decades, and is trusted by some of the best jewellers in Australia and internationally.
Pearls offer great value and style, they look and feel special. If looked after they retain great value, become family heirlooms, and are often worn by many generations for many special occasions.
