WAGGA Wagga Art Gallery and Civic Theatre have teamed up again to provide an enriching experience for theatre goers.
The art gallery is exhibiting Colours of the Country III: The Alice Springs Beanie Festival.
This exhibition is a collection of beanies, drawn from the festival, and demonstrates the growth of the Beanie as an art form over the years.
As a special prelude to the upcoming play at the Civic Theatre, Colours of the Country III will be open from 5pm to 7.15pm.
The civic theatre will be presenting Head Full of Love on Saturday, June 27 at 7.30pm.
The extraordinary story of two remarkable women, the unlikely but inspiring friendship which forms between them, and the birth of the Beanie Festival.
What an inspiring way to see the depth of reach of the humble beanie.
Make the night an immersion into the fibre world by seeing both.
AS PART of local community celebrations during NAIDOC Week 2015, Wagga Art Gallery in partnership with SHINE for Kids is proud to be showcasing an exhibition of Indigenous artwork created by the talented participants of the Colourful Dreaming Program.
Paintings, prints, and woven fibre works are all on show in a unique and compelling display of Indigenous culture, heritage, and connection to country.
The SHINE for Kids Colourful Dreaming Program uses the world of art to encourage the connection of imprisoned fathers to their children while expanding their view of themselves and their world.
SHINE For Kids is a not-for-profit community organisation, and the Colourful Dreaming Program, run at Junee Correctional Centre, has been instrumental in elevating the self-confidence of the men participating in the program.
The children participating in the Colourful Dreaming Program also benefit from being able to experience a renewed connection to community.
Their eyes are opened to new experiences, and they learn more about their rich culture by creating artwork in a wide range of media.
The SHINE for Kids Colourful Dreaming Program exhibition will be officially launched on Friday, July, 3 at 6pm.
The exhibition will be on display in the E3 art space at Wagga Art Gallery until Sunday, July 12.
