The Virtual Burns Memorial Exhibition 2019

The Burns Memorial Art Exhibition is always a wonderful showcase of children’s art that reflects our community and environment. Named to honour George Burns, an Oamaru born journalist with a passion for children’s’ art, it was his belief that “Art is not a luxury. In this day and age, art in all its forms is a pathway back to sanity. I repeat: art is not a luxury, but a necessity for complete living”.
Save the dates on your calendar. Yes! The exhibition will go ahead this year even thought the gallery is closed. Watch out for more details.
