 +**Launch of Living River, 2 May at twilight.**  
 +  
 +Living River is an onsite environmental art project along the Poets Walk, Swifts Creek featuring water bugs and river creatures in range of media.

 +The Poets Walk was initiated by local resident and poet John Butler, and the plan was to feature verses of his poem, The River, on stone cairns along the kilometre walk.  This work was not completed by the time of his death, and the walk has fallen into disrepair. However it is now being renewed and revegetated by the local Landcare group and other community groups.

 +A local stonemason, Ted Cole, is rebuilding the cairns, and new plaques featuring verses of the poem will be installed. ​

 +The Great Alpine Gallery celebrates 20 years this October and is one of the longest running volunteer run galleries in Victoria, if not the oldest. 
 + 
 +Started up by local artists to provide an outlet for creative people in the area, the gallery began life in Omeo, before moving to Swifts Creek, where it has flourished and continues to provide a valuable outlet for East Gippsland artists and crafts people. ​  
 + 
 +To celebrate GAG are launching their 20th anniversary exhibition 20 YEARS: WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE on Sunday October 14th, starting with a champagne brunch at 11am.  The work of the founding group will be acknowledged with founder/​artist Deirdre Jack doing the launching honours. As well as a photographic display of the past twenty years, the exhibition will showcase current members'​ high quality art, crafts and artisan works. 
 + 
 +The exhibition runs from 3 - 28 October and all are very welcome.
