Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has announced the Moree Plains Art Gallery has received a $27,500 grant to go towards a complete overhaul of the gallery’s air-conditioning system.

Mr Marshall says the Moree Plains Art Gallery is a wonderful community asset and a pleasure to visit. He’s delighted this funding has been secured and pleased the government has put its hand up to help with this important project.

He says presently the air-conditioning unit is located on the upstairs balcony; an impractical spot with limited ventilation and the vibrations and water leakage from the system are causing irreparable damage to the building.

Mr Marshall says the other important factor to the overhaul is a humidifier will be connected to the system, which will help protect wooden artefacts.
