2012 is shaping up to be an exciting year!

Hi everyone

Jayes Gallery Cafe & Sculpture Gardens re-opened on 18 January with many changes over the end of the year. The outdoor alfresco area has been refurbished and provides a shady place to find respite from the summer sun with a cool drink or coffee on those lazy afternoons. You can take a stroll around the sculpture garden or a look through the galleries.

The cafe now features a new menu with foods from the regions' finest chefs, main meals from the kitchen of Michael Manners and treats by Shaun Arantz of Racine. As well, Adelaide Harris, chef and fine food writer is preparing delicious cakes to be served with our Lavazza Coffees! So if you are looking for something scrumptious, pop in today!

Gallery 1 has a selection of works from the stockroom and our stable of the regions' fine artists along with glass by Keith Rowe and ceramics by Marjo Carter.

Gallery 2 will become our aboriginal section in the near future as Jayes now has a range of local aboriginal art works and craft items.

The Gift Shop has funky brooches from Sugden and Hamilton, silversmithing from Sarah Whitlock along with a range of interesting pieces sourced from around Australia. A new range in of silk and felt scarves in bright colours and children's clothes hand made by Sambience.

We will continue to promote the fine art and food of the Mt Canobolas region throughout the coming year with our 2012 calendar of solo shows already firmly in place. We look forward to an exciting year ahead and will be happy to see you at Jayes.
