TVs create a new ‘wall' in gallery

THE donation of two 107cm LED LCD televisions to the Grafton Regional Art Gallery will revolutionise access to its artistic treasures.

Gallery director Jude McBean said the televisions, which came to the gallery from a combined $2000 donation from the Greater Building Society and the Friends of the Grafton Gallery (FOGGS), will be used for a variety of tasks.

"The most exciting thing is showing the gallery's collection over the internet," Ms McBean said.

"We have about 90% of the collection in digital format so people will be able to easily see what we have on the screen."

Ms McBean said one of the screens would be used up front in the gallery and the other out the back for educational and exhibition purposes.

She said FOGGS and The Greater had combined to provide $2000 which Harvey Norman had built into a package that included a DVD player, four USB sticks and a wall bracket.

The Greater's Grafton branch manager Kim Campbell said the screens would make the gallery much more accessible for the community.

"The Greater has been operating here for quite a while and we are always looking for ways to give back to the community," Ms Campbell said.
