install BOARD: Surf and skate exhibition

BOARD: Surf and skate cultures meet contemporary art

With an eye to fresh takes, relevance and multidisciplinary practice, and in line with the outdoors character of the concurrent season, this exhibition recognises the board as a ubiquitous feature of Australian life and consequently fertile ground for the visual arts.

Also on display until 4 February 2018, Lake Macquarie: Living Cultures and Five Islands School: At the beach.

Wild Side: the animal in art

Our partnership touring exhibition project Wild Side: the animal in art was on display at Western Plains Cultural Centre, Dubbo, until late 2015. Co-curated by LMCAG's Meryl Ryan and WPCC's Kent Buchanan, the exhibition considered humankind's relationship with the greater animal kingdom. Included were works from both galleries' collections, alongside loans from some of Australia's finest contemporary artists.
