Exhibiting until March 26. 10am - 5pm weekdays, 10am - 3pm weekends and most public holidays. Free entry.

We are privileged to have the opportunity of viewing a lifetime’s collection of the creations of this remarkable woman, remarkable artist who quietly appeared in Mount Gambier about twenty five years ago, totally unknown but whose presence soon enriched the community and who has departed having finally gained recognition. The retrospective exhibition honours her lifetime of dedication to her art.
