Animals are making themselves at home on the walls of AGWA, this June! From paws and claws to wings and things, Animal Ark features works from the State Art Collection that highlight the many ways in which the animal motif has been used by generations of artists.

A family activity space and art trails will make it a great adventure for the young ones, and the underlying exploration of mythology, symbolism and representation of animals through paintings, sculpture, decorative art and works on paper, will appeal to adults as well.

An exhibition to be enjoyed by the entire family!

For families Family Space – open Wed-Sun (closed Tuesdays) 10am-5pm | FREE Inspired by artists’ interpretations of nature’s creatures, budding artists can draw, read or write about their favourite animal. Family Exhibition Sheets – will be available at the AGWA reception desk or online.
