Jenny’s art a drawcard

Jenny Greentree’s Back O’Bourke Gallery was a popular destination during the Community Cabinet visit on Monday.

Minister for Arts Don Harwin made sure he was given a tour of the gallery and was keen to hear the story of Jenny’s transition from teacher to one of the country’s most respected landscape artists.
