Cool Summer 2019 Exhibition
18 - 31 January, 2019 EXTENDED to 17 February due to popular demand!
Our annual and biggest display - the Cool Summer Art Exhibition - reveals a collection of exciting new works by Galleries in the Gardens (GIG) artists. This year our creativity has the theme 'Gardens & Connected Landscapes' - and there's indoor and outdoor works to admire (and they're for sale). While due to run for two weeks from Saturday 19 January, so many people wanted to come back later to spend more time amongst the works that we have extended the exhibition through to and including Sunday 17 February at The Gallery. Open 10am to 4pm daily (closed Tuesdays). The Gallery cottage is set within a shady garden (where you can take a rest from this heat!) opposite the shores of the Myall River, and diagonally opposite the Tea Gardens Ferry Wharf.
Unique & Gifty

As Summer approaches The Gallery becomes the place to find some unique Christmas gift ideas - naturally all original artworks or based on our artists' original works. One of the first collections to arrive is the amazing machine-embroidered artworks by GIG member Dallas Murphy. There are brooches, badges and bookmarks - all designed and carefully contoured with stitching by this very talented artist.

Easter - Fantasy Eggs Exhibition
1 March 2018
A fabulous fantasy world of Faberge-inspired eggs arrived at The Gallery for Easter 2018. And what great interest they attracted, too! Many visitors who popped in after Easter were delighted to still have a chance to see these amazingly detailed works and to meet their creator, too! Thanks Sandy for allowing us to display your beautiful creativity!
Grand Opening of The Gallery
19 January, 2018
What a happy, uplifting night it was - with around 300 people snacking, supping and socialising amongst the artworks – to witness the official opening of Tea Garden’s latest attraction – The Gallery! It was perfect weather for mingling in our beautiful garden; Mike Harvey’s twinkling ivories serenaded guests inside; great speeches; & a commemorative canvas was marked with ‘Open’ by Mark Tedeschi, AM QC, who was quickly followed by other guests to leave their blessings. Many artworks & raffle tickets were snapped up! “Galleries such as this are a very important part of the fabric of society and play an important adhesive role in communities,” said Mr Tedeschi. Commenting that “The Gallery is such an impressive community initiative” was Kate Washington, our local MP. “I encourage everyone to visit this new, beautiful art gallery,” she said. Thanks GIG team!!
