Shoalhaven Regional Gallery is celebrating their success on two grant funding announcements, securing almost $700,000 towards specific projects at the gallery in the last six months.
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor Amanda Findley said NSW and Commonwealth funding has played an important role in the next chapter for the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery.
“I want to thank both NSW Government and the Department of Communications and Arts for these funding announcements without boosts like this the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery cannot continue their important work.
“Only last week the NSW Government announced $600,000 towards an almost $1m project to install an industry standard climate control system within the exhibition spaces at the Gallery.
“This system will improve the gallery’s capacity to secure loans from significant institutions including the Art Gallery NSW and The National Gallery of Australia”
“Funding was also provided to support a national tour of the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery commissioned exhibition Promiscuous Provenance. This exhibition, showcasing the work of Shoalhaven artist Anna Glynn, will tour to 10 galleries across QLD, NSW, ACT and SA over the next three years, highlighting the work of both the Gallery and the artist to a national audience.”
“For fourteen years the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery has been showcasing a strong program of contemporary art exhibitions and workshops and this new funding will continue to stimulate the growing audience in the region.
“This is the next chapter for the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery as they continue to connect the community through the arts.
