Expressions of interest are being called for from Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery for artists to take part in the opening year of exhibitions in the new Cultural and Civic Space. Gallery and Museum Coordinator, Cath Fogarty, said “It’s a really important opportunity for the local arts community to be part of a new era for the Gallery and the City showcasing the strong and vibrant creative community that exists here. It will be a holistic program of artists of all ages, experience and ability including children, with a diversity of mediums and creative approaches including art, craft and design.”
Artists living and working in Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca Heads LGAs are welcome to apply with submissions considered by the gallery team.
“This call-out for artists represents an exciting next step in the move towards the new Cultural and Civic Space. The opening of the new Gallery will be a historic moment and will be supported by a wonderful exhibition of local artists.” said Coffs Harbour Mayor, Councillor Denise Knight.
Expressions of interest are now open and will close on Monday, November 1st.
