"Gaolhouse to Glasshouse" 12 May to 08 Jul 2018 at the Glasshouse Regional Gallery Port Macquarie

The exhibition by 46 of our members is a celebration of the past 200 years, from the time John Oxley climbed Mount Seaview, looked eastward and explored the Hastings Valley.

The artworks are inspired by historical references from the local historical societies and musuems of the Hastings Valley region
