The gallery has been breaking perceptions lately, through both its art and other activities.

The Dreamweavers exhibition (last day this Sunday) looks at the darker side of sleep, presenting a stunning array of sculptural works, multimedia, digital imagery, sound installation and painting.

With a particularly ethereal sound scape accompanying the Sam Spencer “Trophy Wall”, a must see for all duck and game hunters, and with soft yet dramatic lighting, Dreamweavers manages to envelope the visitor in an otherworldly time and space.

This exhibition must finish on 15 April, so if you are yet to experience this incredible show make sure you head to the gallery before Sunday 5.00pm.

Another brilliant event at the gallery recently was a wedding ceremony, held on 17 March in the main gallery. About 120 guests were seated among the Dreamweavers collection.

Through events like this, the gallery is being recognised for the beautiful place that it is and is becoming a sought after venue for special occasions.

The main gallery has superb acoustics that lend itself to such an event, and some people in the past have even taken advantage of the Steinway piano for their ceremony.

And finally, there are a few things to keep an eye on over coming months.  Flood: Through the eyes of artist Caroline Ellis opened in the Access Gallery this week and is on until 29 April.

Caroline became heavily involved with the January 2011 floods when the Avoca River threatened to flood her family property at Mystic Park.

This exhibition displays a collection of photographs she took at the time, as well as drawings and paintings completed on reflection.

Other work Caroline created in conjunction with the Benjeroop and Murrabit communities will also be exhibited.

And watch local media for more information on activities surrounding the National Print and Drawing Awards.

The bi-annual awards attract artists from around the country and to celebrate this, a number of events will be held.

An awards night and dinner will be held on 12 May, there will be an artist talk and Moana Kidd will return to present a spray paint and stenciling workshop.
