The Art Vault is a world-standard arts facility situated on the edge of the outback. A historic bank has been transformed into a vibrant arts hub with galleries, architect designed artists' accommodation and studio spaces. Artists return again and again to do residencies and gain inspiration from the dramatic landscape and nearby national parks. The three galleries and two historic bank vaults display works by local, national, international and indigenous artists. Exhibitions in the Main Gallery and Middle Galleries change every three weeks. On display at present is Brian Reberger 'momenti catturati ... captured moments.' Artworks inspired by his travels and are centred around capturing frozen moments intime. Moments that are intimate observations of people going about their daily lives, or details within a landscape or cityscape that are often overlooked or merely given a cursory glance. Also showing is Tracey Creighton 'Serendipity.' Tracey draws on her personal experiences - spiritual, emotional and physical, whether it be the use of colour, texture, form, design or other intrinsic elements. Opening hours: Sunday & Monday, 10am-2pm and Wednesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm.
