Gallery going touchy feely
GRAFTON Regional Gallery is looking to artists interested in creating 'touchy-feely' exhibits.
The Collection Made Accessible project invites regional artists to produce touchable interpretations of artworks held in various gallery collections.
After submitting expressions of interest in the project, up to five regional artists will be commissioned to create accessible complimentary interpretations of selected collection artworks.
Clarence Valley Council general manager, Scott Greensill, said the Collection Made Accessible project will culminate with an accessible exhibition in December.
"These interpretations, which are artworks in their own right, will be displayed with the original artwork to form the exhibition at the end of the year," Mr Greensill said.
"The collection pieces for the project have been selected by the gallery. They are available to view on the gallery's website for artists submitting an expression of interest in works they choose. Regional artists are invited to submit up to two expressions of interest that include clearly drawn diagrams and even a maquette (scale model)."
Expressions of interest close on Friday September 21. Artists interested in the project can get more information by contacting the gallery on 6642 3177.
