“This year marks a milestone in the history of the Gallery as we celebrate its 40th birthday. To commemorate this, we will be curating an exhibition of artworks, historical information and other ephemera highlighting the Gallery’s 40 year history. This event, taking place in September, will be a highlight of our 2023 program,” Mrs Andreazza said.
Art Gallery Coordinator, Ray Wholohan said, “Our 2023 program will focus on exhibitions and projects that engage artists based in the Riverina or how they have practiced art making the Riverina and themes that are relevant to our diverse community. Our Public Programs Officer, Melanie Toscan has been busy planning a number of engaging public programs and workshops, art talks, after school kids’ art classes and holiday programs throughout this year.”
The Gallery is also pleased to announce the continued partnership with local winery Dee Vine Estate.
“We thank Dee Vine Estate for again coming on board to supply our patrons with their fine wines for our events, and encourage everyone to come and join us on Friday, 10 February,” Mrs Andreazza said.
The current Exhibition Unlemon: a Meandering Tale of Citrus is an exhibition of over 40 still-life oil paintings that unfolds the story of citrus. From its origins approximately 20 million years ago on the Gondwana supercontinent, through its trade routes from China and Persia to the Mediterranean and the Americas, and on to its uses in medicine and culinary practices, the humble citrus is elevated in this exquisite exhibition.
Alison Mitchell will also give an artist talk and demonstration on Saturday, 11 February at 11.30am. This is likely to be a very popular event and spots are limited so the Gallery advises to register for the event to avoid disappointment.
