Grafton Regional Gallery
NSW Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW John Barilaro and Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis this week announced a $7.6 million grant to revitalise Grafton Regional Gallery to attract a new wave of art lovers to the Clarence Valley and keep long-time fans coming back.

Mr Barilaro said the expansion will include a national standard main gallery, new workshops and exhibition spaces, a new café and better storage to protect its valuable collections from floods.

“This project marks a new phase for arts in the Clarence Valley and will create a vibrant cultural hub both for locals and new visitors to enjoy,” Mr Barilaro said.

NSW Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said regional NSW has a rich history when it comes to arts and culture and the Regional Cultural Fund will help to ensure a strong future.

“This funding represents an opportunity to attract new tourists but it also offers educational benefits, gives raw talent a creative outlet, and may even inspire the younger generation into a new arts career,” Mr Harwin said.
