Western Riverina Arts report, September 12, 2017

SEPTEMBER is bringing some exciting events to the Western Riverina area, beginning with Warangesda: Deep Waters at the Narrandera Arts Centre. The exhibition is the result of a year-long project based on the Warangesda Mission at Darlington Point, in which local Wiradjuri artists spent time at the site developing new artworks which are included in the exhibition. Relics from the mission and historical information are also included. Warangesda: Deep Waters had a successful showing at the Griffith Regional Art Gallery in July, attracting over 1300 visitors, and is expected to be just as popular in Narrandera. The exhibition will be open to the public from Thursday, September 14 to Sunday, September 24 (excluding Mondays), opening times: 11am to 4pm.
