Have you seen all that our fantastic capital has to offer you art lovers?
Let’s start with the National Portrait Gallery. It was a long battle to bring the gallery to life and since then, it has always displayed awe-inspiring artworks, depicting every emotion through paintings, photographs and other artistic expression.
Next, we go to the National Gallery of Australia showcases exhibitions from across the globe, providing Canberrans and its welcome visitors, with a variety of cultural pieces from so many talented artists.
If you’re staying with us in Tuggeranong or our soon-to-be hotel in Belconnen; make sure to stop by the local galleries in the area, showcasing the local talent. Belconnen Arts Centre is located at the water’s edge; a stunning backdrop to a quaint gallery. The Tuggeranong Arts Centre offers an adaptable space for all exhibitions and is available for all artists to hold events and display their work.
A mention must be made to the streets of Canberra, with art popping up in cafes, town centres and displays throughout the city, showcasing the secret talent of Canberra artists yet to be discovered.
As part of the final week of Floriade, one of the highlights is a stunning photographic exhibition presented by the ACT division of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, showcasing work from Canberra’s leading professionals.
From our national galleries and museums to the art in cafes and street corners throughout the city; Canberra has art that is nothing short of spectacular.
