Gallery shines a light on new acquisitions

GRAFTON Regional Gallery is keeping the doors open tomorrow night, and while it might be dark outside, they are keen to shine a light on some of the new acquisitions at the gallery.

The night-time opening will begin with director Jude McBean giving a talk at 5.30pm on recent acquisitions to the gallery.

In particular, she will explain the story how the acquisition of one painting, Java and Edgar, Newbold became the foundation of an entire exhibition.

The program will run in conjunction with each round of exhibition openings and will feature artists, art critics and general art lovers who will talk about current exhibitions and programs.

Current exhibitions are 20 Years of Ferry Park; Meena Art from Rajasthan; Albert Henry Fullwood: Java and Edgar; Recent Acquisitions; 2014 The Year of the Horse; and Making Connections.

Ms McBean said opening the gallery during the evening provided new opportunities for people to enjoy the gallery, especially if they worked full-time.

"They can participate in a twilight talk if they want to," Ms McBean said.

"The twilight program is one of many cultural events in the Clarence Valley that stimulate the mind and add to a sense of community."

The second twilight talk will be held in September.
