THE old conference room at the Namadgi Visitor Centre has been converted into the new Namadgi Community Access Exhibition Space.
An exhibition of artworks by the National Parks Association of the ACT, side by side with Ngunnawal paintings and artefacts, will celebrate the opening of the new space.
National Parks and Catchments, Business Operations and Visitor Services Deputy Manager, Jennifer Griffiths, said the show, which opened yesterday, would be the first of many great displays in the revamped space.
The idea is to host exhibitions for a variety of indigenous and non-indigenous artists, Ms Griffiths said.
“The plan is to have a new exhibition every three months, giving the public the opportunity to experience art in the natural setting provided by Namadgi National Park.” She added that they would be working closely with the Tuggeranong Arts Centre to organise exhibitions.
It’s sensible that they’ve opened in July, giving organisers a couple of months to plan for their next exhibition in October, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the park.
