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.

Current exhibition: Rod McNicol: Memento Mori

A Monash Gallery of Art travelling exhibition

Friday, October 14 to Saturday, December 10

Rod McNicol’s photographic practice has always concentrated on portraiture as a genre that highlights mortality. For more than three decades, McNicol has been inviting people from his inner-city community to put their lives on pause for a few moments and stare into the lens of his camera.

The portraits that McNicol has captured in the stillness of his studio are both tender and brazen, they are faces that function as witnesses to the inescapable passing of time. This exhibition surveys McNicol’s extended portrait project, from his early black-and-white prints through to his most recent colour portraits.


Next exhibition: Drawing the Labyrinth: Jacqui Stockdale

A NETS Victoria touring exhibition

December 16, 2016 – March 4, 2017

Jacqui Stockdale’s Drawing the Labyrinth comprises more than 100 metres of drawings presented in a fold-out concertina sketchbook set out on tables and configured in the form of a labyrinth. This continuous length of drawings reflects the artist’s intimate journey over a 12-month period, variously depicting moments spent travelling across Europe, and incorporating a diverse array of portraits such as friends, family members, self-portraits, anonymous people on trains, teenagers in their classrooms, a live band on stage – even a woman giving birth.

Stockdale’s labyrinth evokes the unfolding, serendipitous nature of experience and the ways that we share and comprehend existence as a series of intersecting observations and evolving narratives.

Official opening: Friday, December 16, 5.30pm
Artist floor talk: Saturday, December 17, 10am
Artist workshops: Throughout January and February, 2017
