Murray Bridge Regional Galley will be better equipped to display digital artworks following a donation in the lead-up to the annual Rotary Art Show.

The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge presented the gallery with two large TVs on March 6.

Director Fulvia Mantelli said the donation would give the gallery more scope to display moving-image and digital artworks in all its exhibitions.

"Moving image is such a fast-growing discipline in the arts and it will help us keep up to speed," she said.

She hoped the gallery would be able to continue developing a closer relationship with both of Murray Bridge's Rotary Clubs, whose members were involved in the gallery's establishment in the 2000s.

They have also, for the past 30 years, presented an annual art show which has since become a fixture at the gallery.

Entries are now open in four categories: painting, photography, digital art, and ceramics and sculpture.

Artists may submit entries online until March 17; works must be delivered to the gallery on the 19th.
