This year the two day workshop will be Oils, 9am – 4pm each day at the Tooleybuc Club. I will email the requirements list to all those who have put their names down. I currently have 9 participants and so the Cost: Member $130, Non Members $140 for the two days. With more participants we will be able to bring the price down. So put the word out there to all your contacts. Contact Judy Brawn 0448918771


It is on again!!! Kim Bennett from Arts Victoria has arranged for the Gallery to exhibit local artists work from the 21stof October to 29thof January. As the title suggests works will be unframed and are to be priced up to $80. When a sale is made the purchaser takes the piece with them and it is replaced by another piece of work. It is hoped that locals and visitors will take advantage of this opportunity to purchase artand in the process local artists will be featured and art in the area promoted. If you are interested in participating in this exhibition contact Kim through the Swan Hill Regional Library or emailher participants can submit up to 6 unframed. Work needs to be submitted to the Gallery by the 18th of October.
