Wodonga's new gallery opens to the public

Monday August 2nd, 2021

Hyphen – Wodonga Library Gallery is the regional city's newest community facility. The  name – Hyphen – connects the building’s twin purposes of art and literature and reflects its dash-like shape – the signature cantilever over the building’s entrance. Hyphen features four galleries – Artspace Gallery, Playspace Gallery, Community Gallery and Hallway Gallery – as well as a library service. It has meeting rooms; a Community Studio; Creative Studio for resident artists; Tech Studio and Sound Studio; and, a Sculpture Terrace. Visit the website

Team Leader Gallery Justine Ambrosio says the gallery program has launched with a captivating and intriguing offering: “We’re thrilled to be showcasing the work of First Nations artists in Nyanda in the Artspace Gallery and an interactive experience for all ages in the Playspace Gallery with I have always been here from the creative minds of Skunk Control,” Ms Ambrosio said.

“In our Hallway Gallery we have emerging, two young First Nations artist sharing their work to complement Nyanda and in our Community Gallery we have partnered with the local historical society on Picturing the Past, featuring historical photos and artefacts.

“We are excited to be offering a range of exhibitions across the four spaces in this amazing new building but we’ve also paid homage to our previous venue Arts Space through the name of our climate-controlled gallery space.”
