The artist and her subject

The Dungog Archies returned in 2022 after an enforced layoff due to Covid 19.

The opening night on Friday 25th February was an outstanding success with over 120 people attending.

We were fortunate to hold the exhibition in one of Dungog's most historic buildings, the Old NAB building in Dowling Street, directly opposite the gallery. The home of members Mark Preece and Larry Simon, it is in the process of being lovingly restored to its former grandeur. 

The competition will run from Friday 25 February 2022 until Sunday 13 March 2022.

Again, the Adult Section was generously sponsored by

The Medical Practice Dungog
