At the Swan Hill Regional Gallery this month is the YEP PROJECT.

Working with found objects such as cardboard boxes, styrofoam, wood, pipecleaners, plastics and other found materials, Jackie Gorring will lead students from St Mary MacKillop College and Swan Hill College in a series workshops utilising alternative art materials. These immediate and unfussed results comprise this exhibition.

The A’dale and Beyond by Jackie Gorring

28th of April to the 18th of June

Also at the Swan Hill regional Gallery is the A’Dale and Beyond.

Jackie Gorring’s practice draws on two distinct influences. The comings and goings of life in the rural district of Allendale, her home, affectionately referred to by Gorring as A’dale, and the travels “beyond”, throughout Australia and internationally.
