On the Trail of Ginninderry’s unique art experience

Ginninderry is inviting the public to enjoy some fun adventures and new experiences on the GX Art Trail. This is a sponsored post. 

A COLLECTION of 50 artworks by renowned local and regional artists forms the GX Art Trail, giving visitors to the display village at Ginninderry a unique way to enjoy the works on display which include paintings, photography, ceramics and glass.

Tom Gray, arts and cultural planning adviser for Ginninderry says visitors are invited to come and enjoy beautiful artworks in a “gallery that’s not a gallery” environment as they wander through 15 state-of-the-art display homes in the “up-and-coming” suburb of Ginninderry.

“It’s all part of making an experience of your visit to Ginninderry. It’s not just a display village.” he says.

Tom says that he is proud to support local artists and help present their work to a wider audience.

“We wanted to engage with local artists and all the works are for sale, ranging in price from under $300 to into the thousands of dollars that some of the pieces demand,” says Tom.

He says that local digital artist Paul Summerfield has several vibrant works on display and the exhibition also features glassworks by Debra Jurss and Jennifer Kemarre Martiniello.

Tom says the GX Art Trail is further complemented by a range of public art installations at Ginninderry as well as the nearby Strathnairn Arts Association.

“People will find that the area has changed a lot over the past couple of years. We have a growing community, a new walking trail, cafe, a popular park, public art as well as all the great experiences that Strathnairn Arts Association brings,” he says.

The last stop on the Art Trail is at The Link, Ginninderry’s Community and Information Centre, which also houses a vibrant artspace. Tom says that The Link Artspace is currently hosting an exhibition entitled “Trailhead”, which coincided with the recent opening of a new walking trail from The Link to Shepherd’s Lookout.

Tom says visitors will also enjoy seeing the Mini-G, a tiny home experience that shows a different way of living as well as a range of outdoor activities such as walks or a play at Paddys Park, in addition to the Art Trail.

“We invite people to visit and see what’s happening at Ginninderry and enjoy some fun adventures and new experiences on the GX Art Trail,” says Tom.    

The GX Art Trail is open Friday-Sunday, 10am-4pm until December 12. Visitors can follow the Art Trail by downloading the GX App or picking up a map at The Link, 1 McClymont Way, Strathnairn.
