Postcards from Gungahlin
1 July – 1 November 2020
People’s Choice voting closes 2 August 2020
All winning entries announced 3 August 2020
Postcards from Gungahlin features 142 artworks created by residents of Gungahlin and surrounding suburbs. Over the COVID-19 lockdown period, many of us spent much more time than usual in our own local area, perhaps exploring or connecting with it in new ways, or appreciating the charms of home as a result of our movements to other areas being curtailed.
This exhibition presents a diverse look at the Gungahlin region, from the perspective of those who know it best, and will bring to light many special treasures that may be little known outside their immediate area. From gorgeous sunsets by the pond, to icons of the town centre, to intimate backyard moments, the exhibition shares a glimpse of what makes the region such a special place to live.
Featured are works by artists of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, telling the story of Gungahlin. You can support them by casting your vote in the $300 People’s Choice Award, which will be open until 2 August.
As well as the People’s Choice Award, one winner from each participating suburb will be selected by a panel of local arts and cultural workers. Each winner will receive $300 and have their work produced as a limited edition postcard, which will be available for purchase through Belco Arts. All winners will be announced on 3 August.
