Director of the Manning Regional Art Gallery Rachel Piercy will be the guest speaker at the next Manning Net meeting at Wingham Services Club on Thursday, May 24.
Rachel will speak about what it’s like working in the arts, giving a behind the scenes look at the Manning Regional Art Gallery, touching on its history, supporters and future.
Rachel will also discuss how important mentors are and how they have shaped her career.
The Gallery has been a cultural hub for art and community engagement for the Manning Valley and Midcoast region for 30 years.
A dedicated gallery had been sought for the area many years prior to this.
The success of the gallery is largely due to constant local support and the rich talent that a diverse and outstanding exhibition program throughout the year showcases.
This includes emerging and established artists, group and solo shows, local artists and high profile touring shows.
Rachel’s talk - behind the scene at the gallery - should bring previously unrecognised aspects of the gallery’s role in our community.
All welcome to join the Manning Net meeting at 6.30pm, on May 24 at Wingham Services Club.
The cost for the evening is $25, which includes a two-course meal with complimentary tea and coffee after the meal.
RSVP by by 10am on Monday May 21 to Alison McIntosh 6553 4780, Ruth Brown 6553 9877 or Marilyn Thomas 6551 3416.
