Presented as part of Celebrate Gungahlin Festival, The Artist Showcase pairs local artists and local businesses across Gungahlin display work in a curated exhibition that spans the whole region.
Artists Antoinette Karsten, Sally Holliday, Richie Allen and Hayden Starr are each presenting bodies of work created through the Gungahlin Arts Art In Place program. In 2020, as our city shifted into lockdown, these artists were commissioned to create new work in response to their local environment. The resulting artworks present diverse perspectives of the people and environment of Gungahlin, and will help us all understand this community and this place a little bit deeper.
As well as these stand alone bodies of work that came out of Art in Place, the Artist Showcase also presents samples of work by many other artists who call Gungahlin home. There is a diversity of subject matter and medium, and artists at differing stages of their careers are all represented.
We hope this expanded exhibition will provide the viewer with an opportunity to explore Gungahlin in a way they haven’t before, and to connect with the extraordinary range of talent within the community.
A big thank you to all the businesses and organisations who have generously hosted the works.
