Outback Arts Gallery's 5th Birthday

Five. The number of senses. The amount of people you need for a basketball team. The number of points on the star when you cut through an apple the ‘wrong way’. The number of ingredients in a traditional punch. It is also the number of years the Outback Arts Gallery has been running in Coonamble! (Outback Arts itself has been running since the late 90s but moved into the Monterey Café  space in 2012.)

To celebrate this milestone Outback Arts are putting on a birthday program involving 5 events over 5 weeks, as well as a special group exhibition of some of the region’s most clever creatives, who have been involved in the gallery!

Download the program up in the top left of the page, find Outback Arts on Facebook and get involved!
