Ginninderry positions itself as a housing development different to the mainstream in its commitment to the environment, the local community and to the integration of the arts into the fabric of the development.
The GX Art Trail Pilot Project is a unique opportunity for Ginninderry to reaffirm its commitment to the arts and sustainability by showcasing within the display village hand crafted products made by local artists and craftspeople, creating a showcase of local creativity and adding a unique and high quality aesthetic to the display village.
The proximity of Ginninderry to the Strathnairn arts community demonstrates the existing presence of the arts and GX Art Trail Project strengthens this relationship by supporting not only the artists of Strathnairn but also the broader Capital Region arts community in providing a creative, integrated opportunity to showcase and offer for sale high quality art and craft works.
A curated group of artists and artisans have provided works for exhibition within the GX Display Village homes. These include decorative ceramic and glass works, prints, paintings and sculptural pieces. Products traditionally used to style display village homes are mostly mass produced, off the shelf items which lend a bland, mass market look to the environments. The hand-made items strongly signal the commitment of Ginninderry to provide real support to local artists and craftspeople through the opportunity for sales and exposure
The works are offered for sale and can be viewed in the display homes and through a catalogue available in hard copy, on the Ginninderry website and via the GX phone app.
This project aims to reinforce Ginninderry as a hub for artists and as a place that supports artistic endeavor.
Each display home provides the opportunity to be individually curated as an exhibition. The exhibitions will be periodically rotated, with the product catalogue and online service being updated as necessary.
