From Thursday thru Sunday renowned Gundaroo based ceramicist Moraig McKenna will be exhibiting her stunning wood-fired ceramic pieces, and the walls will be hung with an exhibition of prints and drawings by much admired local artist, Shelley Richardson, whose intricate illustrations of native birds and wildlife are hugely admired and much sought after.

All activities are free, including tastings of our extensive list of superb Gundog Estate wines.  To extend the enjoyment of the creative skills of our three local artists plan to purchase one of our cheese and charcuterie platters to share with a celebratory glass of wine on our autumn garden terrace.
