Gunnedah's annual NAIDOC Week Art Exhibition is returning again this year, with submissions now open.
The 2022 NAIDOC Week Art Exhibition featured everything from handmade figurines to traditional didgeridoos and painted skateboards and thongs.
The exhibition will open at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery on Friday, 7 July during NAIDOC Week (July 2-9), headlining this year’s theme – “For our Elders”.
Artists, hobbyists, schools, organisations and individuals are encouraged to come together and explore the theme and exhibit their artworks in a professional gallery space.
Council’s Cultural Precinct Team Leader Michael Cornford said the annual NAIDOC Week exhibition was an important event on the gallery’s calendar and he looked forward to seeing many submissions from Monday, 12 June.
“Every year, the NAIDOC Week Art Exhibition highlights the artistic talents of locals of all ages and shines a spotlight on the rich culture of the Kamilaroi people,” he said.
“The 2023 theme is an opportunity to honour and celebrate the Elders in our community and we look forward to seeing how this theme is captured in a range of mediums.”
