Art Gallery Director Dr Lee-Anne Hall said Wagga Wagga Art Gallery is pleased to be able to offer a mix of art and cultural experiences to residents and visitors to the city throughout autumn.

“There truly is something for people of all ages to see, to enjoy or to participate in as we activate the various gallery spaces,” Dr Hall said.

“In addition to these two amazing exhibitions in the main gallery, the program will also feature artist talks, cultural performances, Young at Heart and the Take Off @ 4 - After School Art program.

“We encourage you to put a visit to our wonderful gallery on your list of things to do this autumn. You won’t be disappointed!”

The exhibition One Does Nothing Alone traverses April Glaser Hinder’s career as sculptor and painter in which she celebrates and offers thanks to those who have supported her practice over sixty years.

The exhibition is a love letter to one of the region’s most innovative sculptors in this late phase of her career, and an ode to those who have championed her artistic practice in Australia and Europe.
