The work of the city’s art gallery and museum staff has won significant recognition at the Museums and Galleries NSW awards at the Powerhouse Museum on Friday night.

The awards highlight the work and contributions of galleries and museums staff across the state, and the Regional Art Gallery’s FRESHBark program took first prize in the “Engagement Programs: 3-10 paid staff” category.
