Culture in the Country - Moree Plains Gallery
The Moree Plains Gallery is managed by the Moree Cultural Art Foundation & receives substantial financial assistance from the Moree Plains Shire council & the N.S.W. Ministry for the Arts.
The Gallery is currently sponsored by New England Credit Union, Rhodes Kildea, Moree Secondary College, Lagna Court Farming.
As with all major galleries it has a mixture of permanent & temporary exhibitions. We arrived there not too long before closing time & did not have as close a look or as long a look at, everything as we would have liked.
One of the exhibitions that we saw a bit of was the "Quilting" one which represents the culmination of work by a local group called the Moree Quilters. I found this interesting on a number of different levels. One of these being a senior school assistant I worked with for 7 years at Rozelle Public School by the name of Avril Burn who is an extremely accomplished, & recognised, quilter who made our girls quilts for a christening present.
We also enjoyed the aboriginal art that we got to see.
