The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery is a catchment point for much of this creative expression, and a place where people gather to celebrate works from local, national and international artists, as well as take part in some other fun activities.
Artist Jenny Riddle was drawn to the Mornington Peninsula by the potential for spiritual renewal and creative inspiration; a powerful combination that she found hard to ignore. That move, and her career as an artist, had been on her mind for some time, but were acted on after life-altering events that caused her to look closely at her life.
