 open our first

'Salon des Refuses'.

No competition wins for us this year,

but the team of volunteers manning our stall were kept busy throughout the day as they

introduced the gallery, and outlined its activities, to a whole new range of

interested members of the Northern Rivers community.

Serpentine volunteers Sue Alford, Rebecca Moon together with son Oscar,

and Gareth Lindsay Deakin were on hand to answer questions

and explain the gallery's role in our local community to visitors to

Volunteer Expo 2011.
