EXCELLENT NEWS CONCERNING         THE DUNGOG ARCHIES

At our monthly meeting on Thursday 6th August, the decision was made to forego an opening night for the Archies.

 

With the COVID-19 virus still very much prevalent it would be reckless to gather a crowd in a confined space for a viewing.

We will now hold the exhibition in our gallery at 266 Dowling St Dungog from Saturday 5th September til Friday 18th September.

Prizemoney will be awarded as previously advised. We will contact the winners immediately after judging has been completed.

We will ensure that COVID-19 Safety procedures are followed for viewing the Archies in the gallery, but now being spaced over 15 days this should be easily achievable.

We thank you sincerely for your patience and are thrilled that the exhibition will now go ahead albeit in a modified form

opening hours
Monday to Sunday
10 am to 2 pm
266 Dowling St Dungog

Please note we open 9 am on Monday
