Glyph Gallery and Creative Space

Updated: Oct 31, 2023

Congratulations to all the artists, volunteers and members who have assisted during our first week of trading as "Glyph Gallery and Creative Space". It was marvellous to have so many visitors during the Spring Music Festival and lots of excitement about a new outlet for artists and exhibition space for the region. I was staffing the gallery on Saturday, and we had an encouraging number of sales and positive feedback from visitors.

Our recent board meeting elected office bearers for the next twelve months:

Chairperson - Marion Matthews

Deputy Chairman - Robert Gatt

Treasurer - Kay O'Connell

Secretary - Susan Kay

Ordinary Board Members: Sian Burman, Dean Canham, Jo Canham, Britt Gow (Newsletters), Ruth Lazarus (Minute taker), Freya Marriott, Kathryn Riessen.

We have several sub-committees who are working on policies and procedures:

Retail Gallery ( - Sian Burman, Robery Gatt and Freya Marriott.

Exhibitions and Studio Hire ( - Paul Burman, Jill Edwards, Britt Gow and Marion Matthews

Volunteer Roster - Sarah Lu, Susan Kay and Kathryn Riessen

Marketing and Social Media - Britt Gow

There are lots of other small tasks that are necessary in running a community gallery:

  • We need a regular lawn mower for the small back yard - especially this time of year!

  • Cleaner - someone to vaccuum and clean the entrance area and windows. This can sometimes be done by those volunteers on gallery duty, but weekends look like they are going to be very busy - which is a good thing.

  • Maintenance - Roger Bellchambers has been a skilled SW Maker, creating a bracket for the flag and working on the entrance ramp, amongst other jobs.

  • Distribution of flyers, once we have the logo designed and marketing materials printed.

  • Serving drinks - Alcoholic beverages will be served at exhibition openings, so members with Responsible Serving of Alcohol certification are required.

If you are able to assist with any of these tasks or on any of the sub-committees, please contact us at the gallery or by email (
