Saturday 6 July  | 6pm – 8pm
Cost – $35. Gallery Friends/Conc – $30
rsvp –  July 5, 2019

To celebrate and support the 2019 Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award the Gallery Friends are hosting a gala event of fun, music and fund raising.
The aim of the evening will be to assist the Friends to purchase from the 2019 nationally acclaimed Wangaratta Contemporary Textile Award for the benefit of the Wangaratta Art Gallery Collection.

Your attendance will be a powerful and immediate way that the Wangaratta Community can help ‘Craft the Wangaratta Art Gallery Collection’.

The night features music by Atalana Carr, drinks and canapés on arrival in the foyer of the Performing Arts and Conventions Centre, followed by key note comments by Chair of the Kyamba Foundation, Cynthia Brown.

The current WAG Friends fundraising raffle – Tickets $10 each will be also drawn on the evening.

We hope you can join us to help Craft the collection and help us celebrate all things at #wangarattatextilecity
