Five New Aussie Art Exhibitions


AN AUSTRALIANA opening at 5pm on Thursday, January 24 launches the Clarence Valley Council Australia Day celebrations for 2013. This celebration opens five new exhibitions at the Grafton Regional Gallery.

The opening starts with Gumbaingirr elder, Roy Skinner, doing the Welcome to Country followed by Cr Craig Howe, Deputy Mayor, Clarence Valley Council, officially opening the new exhibitions. The five new exhibitions are The Art of Sound, Bevan Skinner: Garlugun.gi, Mrs Prime Minister Co Public Image Private Lives, Feathers Beaks and Claws and Grafton Art Club Youth Art.

The official opening features thong throwing and Aussie accent competitions as well as a fair dinkum barbecue. The delicious barbecue is presented by the Friends of Gallery. Please book into this free event on 66423177 for catering purposes.

You can bring or wear your own thongs or borrow them from the gallery. The thong throwing will be a test of accuracy of your tossing skills. The winner will win a Gold Thong Trophy and the runner-up a Silver Thong Trophy.

A Golden Lips Trophy and a Silver Lips Trophy are up for grabs in the Aussie Accent Competition. All competitors will be asked to read a verse or two from well known Australian poems.

No doubt that the sparkling trophies, made by the U3A MenCOs Shed, will be hotly contested. Hope to see you here in your thongs!

A unique installation will be created by pairing sounds with artworks from the Grafton Regional GalleryCOs collection which will be displayed throughout the gallery and courtyard.
