Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is encouraging local arts practitioners, curators and community groups from across the eastern Riverina to apply to be part of the Regional Artist Development (RAD) Exhibition Program in 2022.

Expressions of Interest (EOI) are now open for the program, which offers the opportunity to exhibit in the E3 art space, supported by Wagga Wagga Art Gallery.

Gallery Director Dr Lee-Anne Hall said applications are welcome from any early career, mid-career or established artists from the eastern Riverina.

“The Regional Artist Development program aims to support the city’s diverse community of artists to learn, grow, create and connect in this space and be supported by the Art Gallery team in the process,” Dr Hall said.

“It offers practitioners a subsidised hire fee and the opportunity to have public programs such as artist talks, or workshops linked to their two-week exhibition period.

“It also creates awareness and appreciation of visual arts and other practitioners working in the eastern Riverina and provides high-quality, diverse arts experiences for local audiences.”

The Regional Exhibition Program will be offering places to artists in the E3 art space overlooking the Wollundry Lagoon in 2022.

Dr Hall said due to the high volume of rescheduled shows necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no places available in the main gallery.

“The Art Gallery environment will provide stimulus, energy and connection to other creative practitioners and community.”

The EOI period closes at 4pm on Thursday 7 October. For more information and to make an application, visit waggaartgallery.com.au/exhibit
