Exhibition to explore a new view of books

4 July, 2019

It’s time to turn a new page in creativity in Gunnedah and join in The Gallery with the Most Stories Exhibition as the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery celebrates Literacy and Numeracy Week 2019.

This creative new Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery exhibition invites artists, hobbyists, local schools, authors, writers and community groups to make alterations to a book, redefine pages, create books and zines and explore the creativity of literacy.

“We hope to see lots of origami, artist books, artworks on paper and altered books at the exhibition,” Gunnedah Shire Council’s Cultural Precinct Team Leader Lauren Mackley says.

“We are also hoping that local poets, writers and authors will display their creative undertakings at the exhibition.

“This is a chance to think outside ‘the book’ when creating your artwork.”

The Gallery with the most Stories 2019 submission forms can be collected from The Gunnedah Visitor Information Centre, 81 Chandos Street. All final artworks are to be submitted to the Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery by 5pm Monday, 2nd September, 2019.

The exhibition will officially open at 6pm Friday, 6 September 2019, and will continue until Sunday, 6 October 2019.
