Cool Summer 2019 Exhibition
January/February 2019 - Extended due to popular demand!
Our annual and biggest display - the Cool Summer Art Exhibition - revealed a collection of exciting new works by Galleries in the Gardens (GIG) artists. Our creativity had the theme 'Gardens & Connected Landscapes' - and both indoor and outdoor works attracted the admiration of visitors. The exhibition was so popular, with many people wanting to come back later to spend more time amongst the works, that it was kept on display for another month! Popular also was The Gallery's shady garden where many like to take a rest from the heat. The Gallery is set in a lovely old cottage across the road from the Myall River, and diagonally opposite the Tea Gardens Ferry Wharf.
