Helping our area's wildlife rescuers
We're delighted to advise that GIG's raffle, run thru our Cool Summer 2020 exhibition, raised $1,374 for the very worthy, not-for-profit Wildlife In Need of Care (WINC) animal rescue group that operates through our area. Thank you to all who dropped into The Gallery & bought tickets &/or donated! 100% of those funds have been passed onto WINC.
Cool Summer 2020 OPENING
10 January 2020
What a hot January night of art & socialising & fund-raising it was for the opening of this year's Cool Summer Art Exhibition! A diverse and fabulous array of new artworks - to the theme 'In The Wild' - were unveiled at The Gallery. Our renowned artists really outdid themselves! Visitors dropped in, cast their People’s Choice vote and helped to support our local Wildlife In Need of Care animal rescue group via our raffle and donation tin. Hope you got to see it before end-January! Like us on Facebook - Galleries in the Gardens - to keep up with our next big event & latest displays!
Spring in the Garden
The Gallery's garden is bursting with Spring life! When you're next visiting The Gallery do have a wander around our garden as well. It receives regular rave compliments from those who drop by, and is a lovely shady place to sit and relax.
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!!
