Laneway Panel Project

We are excited to announce the Laneway Panel Project!

Ten aluminium panels are waiting in the laneway directly south of the gallery for high quality artwork that is engaging and accessible, celebrates culture and community and encourages people to experience art in unexpected places and to think about Nowra CBD differently. An artist fee will be negotiated with the successful applicant. 

The artwork must be suitable for an outdoor environment and will be on display for up to 2 years.

Artists and community groups are invited to submit an expression of interest to be considered for this project. Submissions close on Friday 31 August 2018, download an application form here.
