 +**WEATHER UPDATE**
 +
 +Our Living River Exhibition Launch tomorrow Friday 2 May at 5pm will be moved to the Gallery if we do get the rain promised.
 +
 +----
 +
 +**WE'​RE OPEN AGAIN!** ​ And looking gorgeous. ​ If you can't make our re-opening launch on Friday 5th April from 5pm, drop by (Thursdays to Mondays, 10.30 - 3.30) and check out the new renovated space, and our new exhibition of locally produced arts and crafts.
 +
 +----
 +
 +**CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS**
 +
 +The Gallery has received matching funding from the East Gippsland Shire Council to renovate and so we'll be closed for March, re-opening on Thursday 4 April. ​ This is a tremendous boost to our gallery, some of which has the original wall covers from start up 20 years ago!  Time for a face lift.  We will be **celebrating on Friday 5 April from 5pm**, so please put that date in your diary and come along to share the celebration. ​
 +
 +Because there is a shortfall between the dollars received and the dollars we are pulling out from our limited reserves, we have set up a Go Fund Me account to help bridge that gap.  Any donation is of tremendous use. We have raised over $700 so far but are hoping to make $1000.Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed so far. We hope that those people can come to the opening. [[http://​gf.me/​u/​qyianx]]

 +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.
