  • Art in The Garden

    Art in The Garden

    As spring arrives and the garden begins to blossom, join us for a high tea on the lawns of our Gallery gardens. Help us celebrate this special time of year with live music, exhibitions, artist’s demonstrations and art activities.
    We’ll be joined by some of the Clarence Valley’s most well known and loved artists who will be creating art in our gardens. You’ll be able to watch and chat with them and ask questions as they demonstrate their processes and methods of working. And because you’re going to feel inspired to be creative just by watching our artists work, there’ll be art stations around the garden with plenty of art supplies so you can have a go yourself!
    We have the Maclean ukulele and string group, The Macleles, providing us with live music to entertain you during the afternoon. You’ll love their lively and energetic vibe.
    Our spring exhibition ‘You’ve Got a Hide’ with Brisbane artists Kerrie Stonadge and Jenine Ryan will be open in the Gallery. Both Kerrie and Jenine will be in the Gallery to chat with you about their beautiful artwork featuring works on paper in graphite, charcoal and pastel. You don’t want to miss this exhibition.
    Your ticket price of just $30 includes entry to Art in The Garden, exhibition entry, art activities with our artists, live music and high tea with a glass of champagne on arrival.
    Grab your tickets at the Gallery or on Eventbrite.
