 +The Gallery is thrilled to announce that we have received a $4,000 grant from the East Gippsland Shire Council'​s Arts and Heritage Program for **Living River**, an environmental art project along the Poets Walk, beside Swifts Creek and the Tambo River. And to get us all acquainted with our very own river critters, the Swifts Creek Angling Club and Landcare are presenting a Waterbug Blitz event this Friday, 19th October. ​
 +
 +There are still places available, bookings essential.
 +
 +This program is supported by East Gippsland CMA, the Victorian Landcare Program, and is an initiative of the Poets Walk Working Group.
 +
 +----
 +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.

 +**The Wolfensohn Gift** will be at the Great Alpine Gallery on 15 August from 10am to 2.30pm, for a special one off exhibition, courtesy of the National Gallery'​s touring program, and the East Gippsland Shire Council.
 +
 +In 1988 Jim Wolfensohn (the Australian-born former president of the World Bank) and Elaine Wolfensohn generously donated funds to enable the National Gallery of Australia to buy museum-quality works of art to travel Australia as part of a unique exhibition program. In this program, a wide range of audiences, including those living with disability, are able to experience art first-hand in a compelling way.
 +
 +The Elaine and Jim Wolfensohn Gift comprises three art-filled suitcases and the 1888 Melbourne Cup. They have travelled to schools, libraries, community centres, regional galleries and nursing homes since their development in 1990. In this way, the Gift is enjoyed by both children and adults in remote, regional and metropolitan centres across Australia. This distinctive travelling exhibition has a strong educational function. The valuable artworks have been carefully selected to be both interesting and resilient; so that they can be handled and enjoyed by young and old for many years to come.
