Recycled fragments

This exhibition will feature the works by Mia Mosaic artists from St George Creative Art & Craft Centre. The artists were required to create mosaic sculptures that were made of 60% recycled materials such as preloved and found objects; this was a fun and new challenge in creating their masterpieces.

Home sweet home

1 December 2018 - 24 March 2019, Snapshot Gallery

The photographs in Home sweet home were taken at a time when the Georges River area was developing and estates were being subdivided into smaller lots. Homes varied from large sprawling villas or mansions with extensive grounds and gardens, to smaller cottages and bungalows. Selected photographs from the Georges River Council Local Studies collection depict the architectural variety and diversity of people's lives during this time from the late 19th to early 20th centuries.
