Visual Spectacular - plus Double Exhibition!
21 April - 10 May, 2021
The Gallery’s interior is transformed into a floral spectacular of real flowers and leafery, complimenting two exciting new exhibitions showng at the same time: 'Fabulous!' and 'Mothers'. We can't be 'David Jones Sydney Spring Floral Display' - but we're doing what we can as a little not-for-profit to bring that feeling to Tea Gardens, especially for the lead-up to Mothers Day. A real MUST SEE. Create a special new memory with Mum - or check out the host of Mothers' Day gift ideas.

Cool Summer Art Exhibition 2021
6 - 31 January 2021
Cool Summer is one of the biggest exhibitions we hold annually. In 2021 we worked to the theme ‘A Window On Life’ - with our artists producing wide and varied insights into post-lockdown ‘new normal’ life. At the end of the exhibition donations by GIG and visitors were given to our local wildlife rescue group, Wildlife In Need of Care (WINC). Thank you all!
And the (BIG) winner is...

The winner of our inaugural Galleries in the Gardens Student Art Award is Year 12 Bulahdelah Central School student Jake Billinghurst. His work 'Thanks Dad' is nearly 3m tall! Annabella Whyman ('Mi Familia') and Natasha Veith ('Mirror Image') are Highly Commended - and Harrison Hughes attracted a Certificate of Merit for 'Terri Dragon'. Thanks to everyone who helped make this a big success - including Vanessa & Sue from BCS, our GIG team and the wonderful media who highlighted our Award and Exhibition to the world :). Much appreciated!
