Four of Kathy Bartlett's billboards have been on loan at the entrance of the Featherston Community Centre. Now Kathy is moving away and we will lose them unless we come up with a very modest koha of $600 for these four plus and additional two remaining portraits in this series.

The series is Kathy Bartlett's tongue-in-cheek take on Maoist propaganda. The portraits are local people with inspirational slogans, printed on outdoor-proof aluminium.

'Forward' - portrait of David Robinson, architect

'Do Your Part' - portrait of Sue Wright, cafe owner

'Serve People' - portrait of Janie Nott, artist

'Onwards' - self-portrait of the artist

'Seek Truth' - Isis Turner-Bartlett, daughter

'Keep Going' - Ross Hoare, fire fighter

I think they are great. I love them and think they are clever and thought-provoking - Penny Griffin, librarian and ballet teacher
