Arts Space Wodonga exhibition.

Arts Space Wodonga is a vibrant and accessible contemporary art gallery and multipurpose venue managed by Wodonga Council. Located within the heart of the central business area, the gallery sits within the prominent arts precinct incorporating the Wodonga Library and The Cube Wodonga performing arts centre.

With up to 12 exploratory exhibitions per year, the gallery offers a unique space for northern Victorian artists to present, discuss and communicate their practices to 40,000 plus visitors per annum. Exhibitions extend from emerging and professional practising contemporary artists, to touring exhibitions and projects in conjunction with cultural organisations.

The one-room gallery is a professionally curated space that accommodates events including performance, dance, film and functions within a cultural context.

Interested community members can volunteer at Arts Space Wodonga if they have a love of art and galleries, and would like to give back to their local community.

Next exhibition: Face to Face

Self-portraits by Chris Ellis

Chris Ellis, Portrait C, 2015, oil on canvas.

Face to Face is an exhibition of new work, exploring what Ellis considers to be the most challenging genre in which to paint. To get a physical likeness is challenging. To show the character or personality of the subject is more challenging.   “It has been said that the eyes are the window to the soul. If you get the eyes right, the rest of the painting will fall into place.”

Ellis has chosen to paint these self-portraits because of the availability of the model, always willing and able. Portrait painting can assist with honing your observation skills. In every culture through the ages, portraiture in some form has been practised.

Official opening and artist floor talk: Saturday, April 22, 10am

Artist workshops: Portraiture workshops with local artists, inspired by the work of Chris Ellis, for school groups (all ages). Contact Education Officer Leisa Whyte to secure your place. From April 24 to May 26, 10am to 3pm.
Bookings essential: (02) 6022 9600

Interactive table: Using different media to create your own portraits. Try your hand at the easel and be inspired by Chris Ellis’ work.
