A simply amazing collection of woodwork

Ferry Park Gallery is proud to showcase a woodwork display by the Clarence Valley Woodworkers Association (CVWA) during September.

CVWA usually presents a large woodwork exhibition in association with the Grafton Jacaranda Festival, which has been cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Consequently, the Ferry Park display will be the only opportunity this year for Clarence Valley residents and visitors to see such a diverse display of bespoke and collectable woodwork made by local artisans. Exhibitors include Bob Aitken, Bill Andrews, Neil Cryer, Terry Hulm, Lester Hall and Roy Ellery, many of whom have won awards for their works and have been featured in national and international magazines.

There are over 400 items on display, and all are available for sale. Timbers featured are all reclaimed and include jacaranda, camphor laurel, cedar, coastal sheoak, mango, silky oak, rosewood, hoop pine, pecan, mango, banksia, Oregon and Mallee burls. The items themselves range from jewellery, bowls, toys, watches, clocks, pens, boards and even a ready to play camphor laurel bass guitar. This is a very diverse and eclectic collection of woodworking styles and pieces and highly recommended for all who appreciate the warmth, feel and look of handcrafted timber.

Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association Inc (LCACA) is a not for profit community organisation promoting and showcasing artisans of the Clarence Valley. LCACA opened Ferry Park Gallery in 1993 for members to display and sell their work. LCACA welcome new members to join us as an exhibitor or volunteer to work in our gallery. Ferry Park Gallery is on Big River Way, and easily accessed from the Maclean Interchange on the Pacific Motorway.


Ferry Park Gallery has a COVID safety plan and is open 7 days from 9am – 3pm.
