Artists Invited To Capture Gunnedah

Gunnedah Shire Council

Gunnedah artists, community groups and schools are being called on to create artworks depicting a person, event, site or community group they believe best represents their local Shire.

Gunnedah Captured is an extension of the popular Gunnybalds exhibition that was held in 2022, and invites artists to submit works (in any medium) that celebrate the people and happenings in Gunnedah.

Gunnedah Shire Council Manager Economy and Growth Susan Frater encouraged creative locals to get behind the concept.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for artists to showcase what they believe makes Gunnedah great. There are many different reasons why this region is important to people and we can’t wait to see all of the submissions,” she said.

Submissions are due on Monday 29 April and entry forms are available via–exhibitions or can be collected from The Civic at 83 Chandos St, Gunnedah.

Artworks will be displayed in the Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery from Friday, May 3 to Friday June 7, 2024.

There will be interactive opportunities to create and engage with Gunnedah Captured with the official opening set to take place at 6pm on Friday May 3.
