Young Society of Artists Inc. members are now working towards their autumn exhibition in the Burrangong Gallery, opening in the Young Visitors Centre on the 17th of April.

Members have been invited to add a special feature to the Autumn exhibition by creating small concertina art books to mark the Anzac commemorations and to honour the service men and women who serve in the Defence Forces.

Please note that the Art Room at the rear of the Southern Cross Cinema will be closed for the school holidays and will reopen on the 19th of April 2021.
