“We wanted to involve the community in honouring Jayne’s legacy; she loved art and used it frequently in our support groups and programs, so this was a way we could combine these elements and celebrate her passion for family, recovery and hospitality” 
-Marilyn Dunn, coordinator of the First Floor Program
 
The exhibition is organised in conjunction with the Wilson family, who will judge the winning competition entry in the Family Choice category – for the work which best represents Ms Wilson.
