2017 GAMAA FINALIST: Lapunyah Art Gallery


FINALIST: Lapunyah Art Gallery, Chinchilla for Exhibition Facilitators – In House Traineeship

Lapunyah Art Gallery is located in Chinchilla in Queensland’s Western Downs region. As part of the Gallery’s commitment to giving its volunteer staff greater understanding of the Gallery’s operational procedures, they developed the Exhibition Facilitators In-House Traineeship Program.

It is designed as a 12-month mentoring program which develops skills in working with exhibitors; preparing for and installing exhibitions; promotion and marketing of exhibitions and processing sold artworks. Trainees are also given a space within the gallery for which they have full curatorial responsibility.

The In-House Traineeship Program has allowed Lapunyah Art Gallery to increase its number of exhibitions per year, and has significantly developed their relationships with local artists. The trainees have become an integral part of succession planning for the Gallery.
