Help us jumpstART Creative Learning in East Gippsland!
East Gippsland Art Gallery is passionate about engaging, inspiring and growing the next generation of artists and art lovers from the ground up. Art shouldn’t be a luxury. All children no matter what their situation should have access to being creative.
Our successful free programs for Creative Kids (ages 5-12yrs) and Young Creatives (12-25yrs) grew from a very real need in the community to access free creative learning opportunities. These programs have now outgrown their foundations and need a dedicated art education officer to run art workshops and take art outside the Gallery walls and into the broader community.
East Gippsland Art Gallery has been given an amazing opportunity to make our vision a reality through Creative Partnerships Australia. Our jumpstART campaign is raising money to employ an education officer and for every dollar raised Creative Partnerships will match.

Local art gallery owners Margaret and Michael Beazer will open their Lake Gallery residence in Paynesville for a one-off special event, an afternoon of wine, nibbles and amazing art work.
Their significant art collection includes original works by Francisco Goya, John Olsen, John Perceval, Egon Schiele, Minnie Pwerle, Pat Brassington, Sue Fraser and Brendon Sims to name a few. This is a wonderful opportunity to view a significant private collection held within Gippsland.
This special viewing is $20 which is payable on entry, with all proceeds contributing to the East Gippsland Art Gallery’s jumpstART campaign – jumpstARTing creative learning for children and youth in the area.
