The owners of the Artback Café at Wentworth have decided to close the café part of the operation.

The owners, Anne and Steve Hederics announced late yesterday that the Café operation would close and that they fully appreciated and acknowledged the nine years of support they have received from customers and staff.

Mrs Hederics said that the public are assured that they will still be able to access their always developing artwork for purchase or speak to them directly about hiring the venue for a specialty event or a class.

“The gallery will be open by appointment and we will be promoting various events throughout the coming months,” Mrs Hederics said.

“We are excited about our future and look forward to serving the community with our special brand of art and hospitality,” the owners said in a statement issued late Monday.
