Spamalot is the Monty Python musical that has been “lovingly ripped off” from the acclaimed 1975 film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. … The plot of Spamalot is almost exactly the same as the Holy Grail; King Arthur along with his squire, Patsy and a selection of knights go on an epic quest to find the Holy Grail.

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.

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.
