Western Riverina Call for Artwork25.10.2013
Western Riverina Arts and Griffith Regional Art Gallery want to promote your artwork.
Plans are being finalised to trial touring exhibitions between venues in Leeton and Griffith in 2014.
The aim is to promote artistic talent in the region and share it around. Applications are now invited for displaying works as part of this new initiative.
“The community have a healthy interest in local art and we want to increase the opportunities for local art to be seen,” said Derek Motion, Regional Arts Development Officer. “The Exhibition Trail will provide a guided pathway for artists taking tentative steps toward their first exhibitions.”
“We’ve been sharing local artists’ productions in our windows and many people stop to look. Some even venture in to ask questions. You can see the effect they have on people.”
The artworks will be displayed in both Leeton and Griffith, opening up new audiences for artists throughout the region.
“We hope this initiative will bring out new talent,” said Kristy Brown, Griffith Regional Art Gallery. “Artists in surrounding towns can reach new audiences.”
“There’s talent out there and we’d like to see share their endeavours. It’s a great opportunity for an individual or group and we’re not limited to hanging pictures, all styles and mediums will be considered.”
Now is the time to express an interest in joining the Exhibition Trail. Contact Western Riverina Arts or Griffith Regional Art Gallery for an application or call 6953 5147.
