Trip to the Archibald Prize in Sydney
The art society is planning a day in Sydney to visit the Archibald exhibition and the Streeton exhibition, both at the Art Gallery of NSW and a visit to see the refusals at the Ervin Gallery with lunch in between. Date: Wednesday 6 January 2021. If there is enough interest we are hoping to hire a bus for approximately $50/person. Please click here if you are interested and complete the Contact Us form. This is not a commitment but it is an expression of interest so we know whether to proceed with plans.
This outing is available to any member of the public, not just Dungog Art Society members.

GALLERY LIGHTS UPGRADE
We have been fortunate to receive a grant from Arts Upper Hunter of $1000 to upgrade the lights in our gallery to LED which are cheaper to run and more environmentally friendly.
The total cost of the upgrade is $1415, so generous members have embraced the "Sponsor a Light" scheme where they contributed to the shortfall, by "adopting" one of the 18 lights in the gallery for $20
Here is a list of the contributors so far
Pat & John Staker
Royce Burns & Dianne Pope
Greg & Phyl Danvers
Phillippa & John Graham
Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at the gallery commencing at 5:30pm.
