Growing Rural Arts In Nathalia

Located in a converted grain store shopfront in the middle of town, The G.R.A.I.N Store is a not-for-profit nationally recognized rural arts center with a history of exhibitions, performances and workshops.

The G.R.A.I.N. Store has been designated as a “Model Project” for rural development and arts and a unique relationship has been established with La Trobe University.  It fosters art which furthers community, the environment, rural health, reconciliation and education locally, statewide and nationally while contributing to the economic development of the area.

Yes, we’re closed for the time being.

At the moment we will do our best to deliver ‘virtual closeness’ via our website, exhibitions in the window and our social media.

We normally love patting people on the back for their achievements, giving people a hug when they need it, providing live entertainment to the public, shaking hands on a new collaboration and much more that requires physical closeness.

We look forward to a time when we can go back to the physical closeness that we will all need once we are through this.

Putting strength and well vibes out there,
Love from The G.R.A.I.N. Store team.

16th May – 20th June

Our next exhibition in the window will be a collection of our local artists’ brightest picture. To attempt to put some colour, positivity and happiness in the air while we are all battling the effects of these grey times, we would like artists to consider contributing to this show. If you would like to register your interest, please get in touch via our contact page and a more detailed brief will be sent to you.
