All in a Dog's Life by Chrissy McYoung
Thursday 8 July - Wednesday 20 October 2021
Dogs are amazing animals and an integral part of many human's life. This exhibition, by Chrissy McYoung, is a celebration of all puppy creatures (and even includes a few 'cat dogs'). The scenes are beautifully crafted illustrations that are part fun, part educational, but above all - full of love and warmth. Each and every puppy (and 'cat dog') in the images is a real owned pet - and celebrates the many reasons we love and enjoy a dog's company. The images are whimsical and fun, full of detail and puppy's doing naughty puppy activities. Each new look, the viewer will discover another cheeky puppy- stealing sausages, sneaking into somewhere silly or doing a secret poop. The images were created towards the end of COVID restriction and were a way of joining Chrissy's Facebook community together. Fans and friends would send Chrissy photos and she would bring them all together to inject back some love and joy into the community.
Join Chrissy McYoung to learn the tips and tricks on how to draw dogs. Everyone will paint their own doggy creations to take home. See dates and times for workshops in the tickets below:

2021 Sustainable Neighbourhoods Waste to Art Exhibition
Saturday 23 October - Friday 10 December 2021
The 2021 Sustainable Neighbourhoods Waste to Art exhibition showcases thought provoking artworks exploring litter, waste and overconsumption. Community members, artists, groups and students from across the region have created a range of artworks including wearable pieces, sculptures, cute characters and functional household items. Waste and plastic pollution have an enormous impact on the local and global environment.
The Waste to Art project confronts us all to reflect on the waste in our lives, and what we can do to transition to a more sustainable future. The exhibition gives us some pause to think about the items that are all around us, what they are made from and their purpose. It highlights the value of those materials that would otherwise end up in landfill or littering our landscapes and waterways.
