The gallery will be exhibiting rare Gouldian prints created from original John Gould lithographs, indigineous paintings and digeridoos from around Australia as well as a selection of paintings, jewellery and other artworks by local artists until the 27th of June.
The opening night was held in the new exhibition space in May and attendees were given the chance to meet and mingle with the artists. The gallery also be previewed a selection of felt fashion from Igora Designs in anticipation of the impending SALA festival.
Part profits from art sales will be going to the Hutt St center for the homeless; a frontline agency for homeless and vulnerable people. The centre’s services are accessed by people who sleep in parklands, squat in nearby buildings, and reside in cheap hotels, boarding houses, community housing and public housing.
The centre does some very worthwile work providing professional and other services to help the homeless and vulnerable find secure housing and social inclusion. Hutt Street Centre depends upon the generosity of the public and supporters to maintain their services, for upgrades, renovations and to cover project costs.
The donation from the art gallery will go a long way in supporting the Hutt Street Centre to continue working towards their vision of a society where everyone is respected and encouraged to reach their full potential in a healthy, safe and inclusive community.
