Books+Art: Friends of the Gallery Reading Group

Devonport Regional Gallery

Books+Art is the Gallery’s monthly reading group celebrating art and literature! 

Books are selected by members and at times connected with the exhibitions displayed at the Devonport Regional Gallery. The informal monthly meetings discuss the chosen book alongside the exhibition, providing an open and friendly environment. Meetings are accompanied by wine and cheese, and new members are always welcome. 

One of the advantages of joining the Friends of the Gallery is that the membership of Books + Art reading group is included in the membership fee.
