“SUMMER SHOWING” – 1 DECEMBER TO 31 JANUARY 2018

OPEN DAILY FROM 10.30AM TO 3.30PM

The Gallery at Denmark Community Resource Centre

2 Strickland Street, Denmark

OPENING THURSDAY 30TH NOVEMBER AT 5PM

A year ago a group of artists from the Mill Art Group held a stunning art exhibition at The Gallery to kick-start their association with the Denmark Community Resource Centre.  The inaugural art exhibition at The Gallery was opened by Mr Terry Redman on 17th December 2016.

The MAG’s “Summer Showing” celebrates the one year anniversary of the MAG’s partnership with The Denmark CRC.  It has been a good year of working together, creativity and friendship.  We look forward to continuing our partnership with Petra Thompson, Tim Maisey and the team at Denmark Community Resource Centre.

The MAG’s vision was to create a hub for all artistic endeavours.  We wanted to provide a supportive environment for local artists to develop their skills and to exhibit their work.  We aimed to enhance our local community by participating in arts and community building projects.  We believe we have done all that in this past year.

The Mill Art Group has held 5 main exhibitions over 29 weeks in the past 12 months at The Gallery.  We have facilitated in art-related activities and organized a series of workshops in drawing, rag & quilt, ukulele, and informal Friday drawing sessions. Outside of the MAG exhibitions, the Denmark CRC hosted The Shire Photography Competition, the Greenskills exhibition, the Gondwana exhibition, and the Children’s workshop and exhibition by Christina Harrison. The Gallery is a beautiful well-lit exhibition space, and it is also a popular venue for functions.

The “Summer Showing” will feature mainly works that were completed in the past 12 months by 15 Denmark artists.  The artists participating in this event are Trevor Morse, Marion Nelson, Von Quinn, Gail Barker, Pat Pattinson, Niall Weatherstone, Lynley Lally, Andy Quinn, Elaine Wakka, Elspeth Landgridge, Jo Haynes, Jan Hardwick, Helen Okamoto, Louis Malatzky and John Maxwell.

The gallery is open daily from 1st December to 31st January, from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

It is coming up to the festive season again!  So why not come by to enjoy the artworks on display and grab yourself a bargain!  See you at The Gallery!
