Art at the Airport

The Art at the Airport (AatA) was a curated program showcasing artwork by professional artists living and working in the Northern Rivers region. The program ran from 2014 to 2016 to promote the Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) and professional artists from our region. It offered a new dynamic to the airport environs – bringing visual arts to the 30,000 - 40,000 people who passed through the Ballina-Byron Gateway Airport each month. A new showcase of artwork was presented bimonthly, representing a total of 6 artists per year.

This program concluded in 2016 and we thank our program partner the Ballina Byron Gateway Airport for their support of this program along with all the participating artists who showcased their works celebrating our creative community and welcoming visitors to the Northern Rivers Region.
