The Arts Council of the Dorrigo Inc. will present the annual Creative Mountain Arts Exhibition (CMAE) over ten days at Easter (13-23 April 2017) in the Dorrigo Community Hall. This wonderful community event is a showcase for work by Plateau artists and artisans. It includes painting, sculpture, weaving, glassware, quilts, jewellery, woodwork, ceramics, etching, and more!

The theme for 2017 is Ahead in the Clouds, and artists are invited to portray how they imagine our future on the Plateau, whether utopian or dystopian! Entry forms are available from Gallery 2453. Special features of the exhibition include the Shoebox Sculpture Competition and the Youth Art Exhibition. If you are a young artist aged between 15 and 21, you may be interested in participating in our youth art workshops prior to the exhibition: email This email address is being protected from spambots.
