GALLERY IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED FROM 25TH MARCH
Dear Gallery Patrons, Supporters and Creatives,
Thank you for your continued support of the gallery - now more than ever our creative community needs your support.
Unsurprisingly, NRCG is now closed until further notice.
We will continue to sustain our creative community through creative programs and art in recovery projects as this situation unfolds and undoubtedly abates.
We hope you can all stay home and make some art, in solidarity with many artists over the years who have made art in quarantine. May there be plenty of time for nourishing creation and reading ahead. Maria Popova is always a good start...
"Suffering - biological and psychological, in private and en masse - has always accompanied our species, as it has every species. But we alone have coped by transmuting our suffering into beauty, by making symphonies and paintings and poems out of our fragility - beauty that does not justify the suffering, but does make it more bearable, does help the sufferers next to us and after us, in space and in time, suffer less, in ways the originating consciousness can never quantify in the receiving, never estimate their reach across the sweep of centuries and sufferings."
- Maria Popova

NAIDOC Week - Arts Program in Ignite Studios
A special opportunity to celebrate this year's NAIDOC theme - VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH. Let's work together for a shared future. People are invited on a special journey to honour and share the Indigenous voice that includes know-how, practices, skills and innovations.
Bundjalung artists Monica Kapeen, Michael Philp and Emma Walke will share their skills in weaving, painting and ceramic workshops over two days where there's sure to be much yarning and exchanging of ideas through the process.
These creative workshops are great way for our community to learn, connect, enjoy and celebrate Aboriginal culture together with local Bundjalung artists.
