The Glen Innes Art Gallery will be hosting its first exhibition for 2017 when the “Autumn in Glen” exhibition opens on April 22. Artists will be recognising and embodying the local sights, colours and events of autumn in a range of media.
“Autumn in Glen” at the Glen Innes Art Gallery will be held concurrently with a similarly themed exhibition at the Art on the Corner gallery and shop. The members of both organisations recognise an opportunity to inspire our local community and the visitors that come at this time of the year with a cultural bonanza.
Far from being in competition, the two groups recognise the value of expanding choice for artists, and enhancing the experiences for those who come to see and be inspired by their works.
At this time of year, delightful with clear sunny skies and frosty mornings, the Celtic Festival brings thousands of visitors to our town. Visiting local art and craft galleries is a must for visitors, and the Glen Innes Art Gallery and Art on the Corner will be high on their list.
A progressive opening of the two exhibitions will be an exciting new event, and a charming and interesting way to spend your Saturday afternoon on 22 April. Starting at Art on the Corner in Grey St. at 2.30pm, you can soak up the atmosphere of this quirky gallery with its collection of hand printed cards, jewellery and wonderful silk and wool scarves alongside the current exhibition.
Whet your appetite with fresh fruit before wandering on down Grey Street to the Glen Innes Art Gallery. There you will be entertained by the wonderful music and songs of Spirit of the Glen while you enjoy drinks and nibbles, and admire the works in this carefully curated exhibition.
The exhibitions will be open until 12 May.
