Arts

As the Ginninderry development evolves, we will support programs designed to improve the education, social, and economic outcomes of residents in the local area.

Arts initiatives at Ginninderry

Our arts initiatives are designed to inspire culture and community by providing residents with the opportunity to pursue their creative passions through participation in workshops, initiatives and collaboration with artists from the Strathnairn Arts Association Precinct.

From the establishment of local groups such as the With One Voice choir, to a Design Library featuring 60 artworks by prominent artists that can be incorporated into building elements at no extra charge, our arts initiatives deliver opportunities that showcase and celebrate creativity.

The Link Art Space provides exhibition space to artists, schools and community groups for the cost of just $100 (to cover cleaning costs for the period of the exhibition). With access to the Foyer, external spaces and other areas subject to approval, the space also features moveable screens and plinths. Exhibitors can also have an online exhibition running concurrently with the actual exhibition.

Ginninderry Design Library

To support our commitment to building quality open spaces that enhance the public realm, we have established a Design Library that features 60 designs created by three prominent regional artists, Geoff Farquhar-Still, Claire Primrose and GW Bot. These designs are available at no cost to approved architects and builders, to use as feature elements for façade designs, signage, seating, walkways and other buildings in the public domain.

Public Art

Through our unique connection to the arts, Ginninderry is a development like no other. Our commitment to creative endeavours is showcased through the integration of public art throughout our precinct, that reflects our unique location and identity. Our Public Art Reference Group assesses proposed art installations and designs with the involvement of the community.

Current Exhibition: Point of Reference By The Tin Shed Art Group

The Tin Shed Art Group (TSAG) is a self-supporting collective. Each year members of TSAG work towards a project—using their unique viewpoints, styles and mediums to interpret different themes. This year’s theme is ‘Point of Reference’. The TSAG is one of Canberra’s longest-running artist collectives and currently includes nine dedicated Canberra artists: Noelle Bell, Julie Delves, Margaret Gordon, Eva van Gorsel, Manuel Pfeiffer, Alan Pomeroy, Peggy Spratt, Jenny Adams and Delene White.

Upcoming Exhibitions

Country Scenes Flora & Fauna

By Eva Henry & Isla Patterson | 31 August - 9 October

In this exhibition, Isla Patterson teams up with Eva Henry. Isla’s recent work focuses on watercolours, depicting the beautiful Brindabella mountains, the distinctive local birds, local history, old cottages, rivers, and reflections on
the water. She has travelled widely throughout the world painting in places such as the Kimberley in Western Australia and the Antarctic. Eva is similarly inspired by the amazing variety of the Australian landscape; from the NSW
South Coast to the the Pilbara and the Kimberley.

Ginninderry Design Library

Ginninderry Design Library

By Ginninderry Design Library Artists | 12 October - 20 November

In 2019, and in 2021 eight exceptional artists were selected to contribute to a special art collection inspired by the landscape, culture and ecology of Ginninderry. This design library is a set of commissioned artworks able to later become permanent elements in the landscape and design fabric of the neighbourhood. We are very happy to present a selection of these artworks for a short time only at the Link.
