Opening of Gifted: The Friends of the Wagga Wagga Art Gallery
For over thirty years, since the foundation of Wagga Wagga Art Gallery, hundreds of our supporters have contributed their time and energy, helping to bring exhibitions, programs and cultural events to the local community. Their generosity has also provided many amazing works of art for the Gallery's collections - and now these paintings, prints and glass works are on display, all together for the first time in Gifted, a tribute to the Friends of the Gallery.
The Friends support the Gallery in many ways: advocacy and lobbying, promotional activities, helping out with public programs and installing exhibitions. They also provide the wonderful catering for our own exhibition launches; and in 2009, the Governor of New South Wales, Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO, was so impressed by their dedication that she accepted their request to become the official patron of the Friends of the Gallery. Join in the celebration and help us open this extraordinary exhibition on Thursday 8 December at 5:00pm.
The opening is a free event but if you are able to come it would be appreciated if you would let us know.
