The art of Winter

This June we explore some seriously Wintery Local exhibitions around the Shire. So grab your beanies and scarves and head out for some brilliant local art…

Dorrigo Rainforest Centre

Next up at the Dorrigo Rainforest Centre is their ‘Winter Art Show’. Running until the 14th of July, the exhibition features new artworks from many regular exhibitors at the Rainforest Centre, including photography by Chris Wynne & Ross Thompson, paintings by Carol Simons, Gunda Loebau, Gail Cardow and several others together with finely crafted timber, leather work, printmakers and glass art. A visit to this new exhibition is sure to please, not to mention the beautiful autumn colours currently gracing the streets of Dorrigo. A great time of year to head up the mountain folks!

Nexus Art Gallery

Opening on the 16th June the legendary Nexus Art Gallery’s Winter Members Show is always a brilliant showcase of local talent in the the Bellingen Shire. Opening night is 2pm 12 July so head along for a fun afternoon of drinks and nibbles.

Art Space Gallery

Once again the god folk at the Art Space Gallery in Urunga are putting together a massive winter show so all their clever local artists can dazzle with their prodigious talent. “These shows have been one of our most enjoyed events, with hundreds of wonderful works papering our gallery walls.” Said exhibition organiser Christine Wilson. “We don’t know as yet what the works will be, but expect painting, glass art, photography, ceramics, quirky furniture, sculpture and a few wild cards as well.” Everyone is invited to come and celebrate the opening on Saturday 15th of June from 10.30am till midday. There will certainly be a cake or two plus delicious fruit punch. The exhibition will run from 13 th of June till 28 th of July. The gallery is open every day from 10am till 3pm.
