At the suggestion of the Walcha Arts Council, Walcha Council has adopted the concept of developing Walcha as an Open Air Gallery. The decision was taken for a number of reasons, not least of all to develop Walcha’s distinctiveness, to provide an additional dimension to the quality of life of our community and to provide a source of expression for our very talented local artists.
There are 41 pieces of art scattered around the town which have been created by local, national and international artisans. Most of the works are have been created using local timbers, numerous pieces forming seats for taking in the ambiance of our the great vistas around town.
The Walcha Gallery of Art is located on the main street, and showcases various artworks by local, regional and international artists, with sculptures, prints and jewellery also on display. Additionally, the gallery hosts various changing exhibitions, which are as exciting as they are varied.
