Jennifer Frost has been volunteering at the Devonport Regional Gallery for the past five years. As an active member of the Friends Committee, Jen plays an important role inspiring the group and helping to organise functions and events at the Gallery. Jen is also a practicing artist and her knowledge and skills in the visual arts have kept her motivated and interested in the Gallery’s programs. Jen has also conducted workshops at the Gallery and is passionate about promoting the Gallery and the arts in our region. 

Jen can be found in the kitchen prior to an exhibition opening preparing delicious platters and then later assisting the group of volunteers who serve and greet people on opening night. Last year, along with other members of the Friends of the Gallery Committee she put in many hours assisting with the Melbourne Cup luncheon fundraiser which was a great success. Jen is one of those people who make things happen but more importantly she is always up beat and willing to take on new challenges.

Devonport Regional Gallery Young Member Volunteers – The Droogs 

The DROOGS are the Devonport Regional Gallery’s Young Volunteer Members. The DROOGS started in 2009 and  a range of creative art projects in the community, encouraging a sense of ownership and belonging amongst the younger generations and the Gallery.


The committee – currently in recess – mainly consisting of local senior secondary students, would meet regularly at the Gallery to discuss initiatives and ideas specifically designed to engage with other young people in the region. 

The Devonport Regional Gallery’s young members group, the Droogs, are always on the lookout for new members.

If you’re aged between 16 and 30 years and have an interest in planning, participating in and organising creative events and projects in Devonport, then the Droogs is the perfect group to express your creative talents!  

The Creative Learning and Public Programs Officer is available to visit schools and colleges to speak about the Droogs, and other opportunities to be involved in the Gallery.
