A new exhibition space for Dubbo

Wednesday, 7 Jun 2017

Learning Commons DubboNewly-completed revitalisation of Charles Sturt University (CSU) in Dubbo has given rise to a new exhibition space for artists and the public to use.

Head of Campus at CSU in Dubbo Ms Cathy Maginnis said the space is professionally set up, accessible, safe, crowd-friendly and free.

"The heart of the campus in Dubbo underwent a significant $4 million revitalisation in 2016, and as a reflection of our ethos 'for the public good' we are offering individuals or collectives the opportunity to host an exhibition here," Ms Maginnis said.

"This is an expression of 'yindyamarra winhanganha' and the University's values of being inclusive, inspirational and impactful, by facilitating spaces for the community to share and learn from others in a warm and welcoming environment.

"We offer a significant hanging space that is a cost neutral option for those wanting to exhibit and sell their work."

The first exhibition will be by local Aboriginal artist Mr Mal Morris from Monday 26 June to Friday 25 August.

CSU seeks applications from artists, curators and organisations by Friday 28 July to schedule exhibits for the coming 12 months.
