And the members of the Galleries in the Gardens Art group have another reason to take a bow, having recently been recognised in State Parliament.
Out of the blue, they received a postal delivery which contained a NSW Parliamentary Certificate and a letter advising that in the first session of the 56th Parliament, the Gallery had been acknowledged with a Community Recognition Statement by local MP, Kate Washington.
In the letter to Galleries in the Gardens, Kate Washington said, “Serving as a member of the NSW Parliament on behalf of the electorate of Port Stephens, I am granted the privilege of acknowledging outstanding service to our community via a Community Recognition Statement (CRS).”
“While I am only allocated one minute to speak on a CRS, it serves to highlight the good work being undertaken by local organisations.’’
Galleries in the Gardens President Trevor Cook said the Certificate also noted, “The fantastic work of the GIG members, particularly President Trevor Cook, Secretary Cheryl Cook and Vice President Ian Morphett.”
Kate Washington went on to say, “I also extend my thanks to Lee and Rob Anderson, whose generous gift to the group has given The Gallery a home.”
GIG members are now busy getting ready for their annual Winter Warmer Art Exhibition which opens on Friday 8 June at the Tea Gardens Gallery.
