What's Coming Soon?

A few sneak peaks to temp you all.

Now in it's Ninth year of continuous Exhibiting in the Lovely Gawler Community Gallery, this great group started out with 6 members and due to retirement they are now down to 4.

However this hasn't stopped them from providing us with a   colourful collection of NEW work.    With a collective of 96 years of experience in the arts, it will be difficult to decide which one to take home and enjoy as your very own, made with creative vision and love. 


 As usual Ellen will delight everyone with her life like paintings of Animals, from wild creatures to your best friend, come along and choose one of her wonderful pieces to grace your Lounge or Entry.  Ellen excels in her ability to interpret the expression in each animals eyes and facial features.

The Gawler Art Society has many members, they meet weekly for painting sessions and have people come in to give talks and also provide the odd one day Master Class. What a great way to make friends and pick up new ideas.
They will have 2 rooms this year and exhibit with us regularly. There will be a diverse range of artistic style and topic on display by this very talented group.

The openings for these exhibitions are currently planned for on Sunday the 6th of July, at The Gawler Community Gallery, Station Master's House, 23rd Street, Gawler South.
