Artist Fay Mitchell holds her painting Saddle Hill Bleeding which will be the focal point of an exhibition of works featuring the controversial landmark next month. She is looking for people with existing images or paintings of the hill to lend, or recent artworks of it to sell, for the exhibition. The sale of Saddle Hill Bleeding on an internet auction site would fund the exhibition at the Mosgiel Library, the former Saddle Hill resident said.

"We want to keep it in the public eye and show people do care about it." The exhibition will run from February 21 to 25.
