Art focus inspires families

ART lovers took advantage of a family day at the Grafton Regional Gallery on Saturday.

The program included a range of interactive activities aimed to inspire and delight toddlers, teenagers and all ages in between.

Activities prepared by artists from the Queensland Art Gallery’s sixth Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art included drawing, modelling, stickers, a stop-motion film and more.

The gallery’s education and public programs officer, Rose Marin, said it was a fantastic turnout with more than 200 people enjoying the activities on show during the day.

“We had a great day with lots of happy smiling faces,” Ms Marin said yesterday.

Grafton Regional Gallery was the only gallery in New South Wales to host the event.
