A great selection of work from the Grafton Regional Gallery’s regional collection went on display last Friday, in The Kirk at the Yamba Museum.
The selection was inspired by the Clarence Valley and its recognisable icons such as the Clarence River, Angourie Point, the cane fields and our Jacaranda trees.
Grafton Regional Gallery director, Jude McBean, said she was pleased to present an exhibition in the Lower Clarence and one which represented the gallery’s major regional collection.
“The regional collection developed since the gallery was established in 1988 represents the visual art history of the Clarence Valley and nearby regions,” she said.
“The collection gives a distinct identity to the gallery and significantly it contains contemporary artworks and traditional artefacts by the Aboriginal people of the area.”
Artists on display include Cass Samms, Ken Done, Malcolm King, Frances Belle Parker, Graham Mackie, Henk Kaptein, John Millington, Rosie Vesper, Robert Moore, Deborah Taylor and Geoff Crispin.
