art of three at chapel gallery

It was terrific to officially open the Art of Three exhibition at the Chapel Gallery, located in the Kallista Uniting Church. The exhibition includes the work of John Dudley, June Barnett and Charlie Tong. John and June are members of the prestigious Twenty Melbourne Painters Society, with John currently holding the position of President.

From left to right: June Barnett - artist, Karleen Osborne - director, Samantha Dunn - councillor and John Dudley - artist. Art of Three is a wonderful collaborative effort between the Chapel Galley and artists June, John and Charlie.

Local arts community supporters came out for the opening and it was wonderful to see such broad support of the gallery. The Chapel Gallery provides a place for local artists to exhibit their work and is also a place where community members can seek solace and a cup of tea and a chat too.

It was terrific to see the works of John, June and Charlie, the gallery is fortunate to have the support of these local artists. All funds raised from the sale of works at the gallery go towards community outreach projects. It’s a great spot to stop and check out the myriad of different works available for sale. The church is to be commended for their efforts to support community and local artists at the same time. They do much to bond our community and make the Dandenongs a better place to live.
