'kay, think I got it now :-) This will take just requests for anything
in the gallery folder and send them to the new page. You may or may not
need the IfModule block, try it without first

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule   ^gallery(.+)  http://isitbeertimeyet.ca/index.php  [R,L]

or just:
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule   ^gallery(.+)  http://isitbeertimeyet.ca/index.php  [R,L]

Lots more examples for just about any situation at:
geeky stuff but a necessary tool with Apache software.
