SPRING is heralded as the season of new beginnings but winter is set to breathe new life into the Warwick Art Gallery this year.

Over the past couple of months, construction has been under way on a new climate controlled storage room for the gallery.

The new addition is almost complete and will deliver a first-class facility which can be used for workshops, meetings and to story high-quality artworks.

Director Karina Devine said she was rapt with the new room and couldn't wait for members of the community to take advantage of the great facility.

"This gallery's strength has always been its community engagement and this will strengthen that," she said.

And it is not just inside the building being revamped.

The grounds outside the gallery will receive a whole new look, just in time for the Jumpers and Jazz celebrations in July.

A new water feature and redesigned gardens and lawns are set

to not only brighten the area but open it up for flocks of festival

goers.

Ms Devine said she would love to see the new and improved area adorned with deck chairs once work was complete, providing a great outdoors, getaway spot.

This gallery's strength has always been its community engagement and this will strengthen that.
