One of Victor Harbor’s major assets in the arts is in dire need of new members in order for it to continue, or it will have to consider closing.
The Victor Harbor Regional Art Gallery – formerly the Ocean Street Art Society – has been operating for over 30 years in the Victor Harbor Central Business District.
It is a co-operative of artists, displaying high quality arts of the region and its people. The artists have a large gallery open throughout the year.
Many talented artists have exhibited, including Alfred Engel, Betty Mahoney, Chris Mathews, Wendy Jennings, and Margaret McEntee.
It is an asset and contribution to showcase the talents of Fleurieu artists, and locals are interested volunteers are invited to join the group.
For the gallery to continue, additional artists and volunteers are needed.
A new constitution has been created to allow for a variety of ways to operate the gallery.
Current members are keen to welcome new artists and others interested in art to forge a beautiful and dynamic space in the community.
An information and discussion meeting at the gallery on Thursday, July 20 at 2pm will help forge a new future.
The committee encourages anyone who is looking to join, or wants to help in some way, to attend.
You may also phone the gallery on 8552 1316, or contact the Chairperson, Chris Reid, on 0400 783 207.
The gallery is at 7A Railway Terrace, Victor Harbor.
