End of year celebration at the Gallery

The Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery invites you to their end of year celebration next Friday, 7 December.

Open to all members of the community, the free event will feature live music, drinks, nibbles and the opening of two exhibitions.

The first exhibition will showcase recent acquisitions to the gallery while the second exhibition, From One to Another, pays homage to 14 local artists and their interpretation of works from the gallery’s permanent collection.

Art Gallery Director Ian Tully said the event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the gallery’s collection and local artists.

“We will be celebrating on many levels – our recent gallery renovations, our collection, our recent acquisitions, the work of local artists and a really successful year for the gallery,” Mr Tully said.

“And From One to Another is really the perfect exhibition for this time of year as it showcases works from our permanent collection and from local artists.

“It features 14 artists who are local to our area or have a local connection, who were asked to select a piece from our permanent collection and respond to that piece using their own style and interpretation.

“And the results are as breathtaking as they are unique – it’s truly a special collection.”

Mr Tully went on to highlight the importance of celebrating the gallery’s permanent collection.

“Many of these works have been donated, and some purchased using funds donated by local people, people who love art and want to support the gallery, and we are so grateful and appreciative for this support.

“And to top off what has been an incredible year and to finish off our renovations at the front of the Gallery, we’ll have some new street furniture installed just in time for our outdoor celebration.”

The gallery’s end of year celebration will be held next Friday, 7 December on the front deck of the gallery from 6pm to 8pm. All welcome.
