Annual Hunter Wrap With Love Inc Knit-in

We look forward to seeing you on Friday 10 August between 9.30am and 4pm for the annual Hunter Knit-In. Knitters from far and wide will gather at the gallery to knit hundreds of squares for cosy wraps to be distributed across the globe.

Individual knitters are welcome. Call in for half an hour or feel free to stay and knit all day! Endurance knitters will be fuelled by the delicious morning and afternoon tea provided. If you are unable to attend on the day, you can also participate by knitting squares at home and dropping them into the Gallery prior to the event. For further information and individual patterns please see http://www.wrapwithlove.org/

Wild Side: the animal in art

Our partnership touring exhibition project Wild Side: the animal in art was on display at Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo, until late 2015. Co-curated by LMCAG's Meryl Ryan and WPCC's Kent Buchanan, the exhibition considered humankind's relationship with the greater animal kingdom. Included were works from both galleries' collections, alongside loans from some of Australia's finest contemporary artists.
