Public Art Policy

Tamworth Regional Council (TRC) recognises the importance of public art in building community identity and is seeking feedback on the draft public art policy and input from the region’s residents to develop a strategy for its public art program.

“Public Art” is art in any media planned with the intention of being staged in the physical public domain, usually outdoor and accessible to all.

Council is starting a two-stage six-month process which will establish the guidelines for how it will deliver the community’s vision of public art across the region. The first step is to seek feedback on the draft public art policy and then put together a public art strategy.

The draft Tamworth Regional Council Public Art Policy aims to ensure Council’s commitment to public art and can be download from the home page

Written submissions are invited from members of the public in relation to a proposed Public Art Policy and should be addressed to: The General Manager, Tamworth Regional Council, PO Box 555, Tamworth NSW 2340. Submissions will need to be received by 5pm Friday 18 September 2015. For further information please contact Bridget Guthrie (Director, Tamworth Regional Gallery and Powerstation Museum on 6767 5249)

Esther Halliday Studio

This workshop provides an opportunity for tapestry weavers with some experience to enlarge their skills in drawing, design and weaving.

Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape, participants will be guided through the process of creating a small individual work.

The surrounding landscape forms will be used as a starting point for an idea and need not necessarily dictate a literal interpretation. There will be discussion on how artists have reacted to and incorporated the landscape into their work, and examples will be shown.

Numbers are very limited. Booking and pre payment is essential to secure your space in the workshop.

You can bring your packed lunch and use the refrigerator in Gallery kitchen.

For more details including materials list and bookings phone the Gallery 6767 5248
