Benefit fund helps out Warwick Art Gallery
VOLUNTEERS at the Warwick Art Gallery were impressed when they discovered a new, much larger fridge in the kitchen yesterday morning.
The group of volunteers were gathered at the art gallery for their monthly morning tea.
Art Gallery director Karina Devine said she had acquired the fridge after receiving a $1400 grant from Jupiters Casino Community Benefit Fund.
"It took about five months for them to approve the application," she said.
The old fridge, at least a quarter the size of the new one, had been promptly unplugged and pushed to a corner in the room.
"We do use the fridge a lot," Ms Devine said.
"We have monthly events, monthly volunteer meetings and volunteers here on a daily basis.
"Now they will have somewhere to put milk for tea and coffee and to store their lunches."
Volunteers have been busy at the art gallery hanging the new exhibition titled The Wandering, by Andrew Pearce.
The exhibition's opening will be held at 6.30pm on Friday at the gallery.
It is free to attend and wine and food will be available on the night.
