Wyndham City is finding ways to continue to deliver arts programs to residents while the gallery is closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Arts and Heritage portfolio holder Cr Tony Hooper said he was delighted with the success of Council’s first digital exhibition opening
“We had the REVEAL exhibition hung and we knew the community was excited to see all of Council’s artwork on display at the Wyndham Art Gallery,” Cr Hooper said.
“However, with the closure of the Wyndham Art Gallery, due to health preventative measures, we had to find another way for the community to view these works.”
“On Thursday night, Wyndham residents and people across the globe had the opportunity to experience the opening night online with a video tour of the exhibition, while enjoying the comfort of their own homes.”
“The video shows newly-acquired artworks, such as Mirka Mora’s Young Devil with Rabbit charcoal drawing, which has been on loan to the Heide Museum of Modern Art, a photograph by Leilani Fuimaono, a painting by Sue Anderson, and a new collaborative work created by Jessie Deane and community members.”
“The exhibition also features famous photographic work from Michael Cook and stunning paintings of our Wyndham landscapes, with something for everyone.”
