The (Rev.) Dieter Engler (Mitcham Village Uniting Church) describes art as having often shone a visual light on those areas of our culture that we are uncomfortable to look into. To be open to art then is to open oneself to aspects of the world otherwise hidden.

This exhibition showcases
 30 artists and over 40 works. The exhibition was opened on Friday 21st of March at 6.00pm by Dr George Couvalis, Flinders University, Lecturer at School of Humanities and Creative Arts, Department of Philosophy.

Gallery One is an independent arts initiative located within the Mitcham Cultural Village, promoting and showcasing excellence in the local art and crafts community. One of the longest running organisations of its kind in Australia, Gallery One has evolved over a span of 40 years into an education facility with a robust exhibition program and retail outlet.

The folk at Gallery One besides having a love of the creative are also happy. Check them out in this clip:
