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.
The G.R.A.I.N. Store acknowledges the Yorta Yorta people of the Yorta Yorta Nations as traditional owners of the lands skies and waters where we work. We pay our respects to elders past, present and future and recognise the strong connection to culture and innovation that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded.
We are currently on a summer break until 11th February 2021, when we will reopen the gallery with Wunderkammer, our exciting first exhibition for the year by Jens Altheimer in collaboration with the local community. We do have a workshop with Jens if you would like book your spot or just know more, click this link.
You can also view our window exhibition: Out of the Box III, a selection of work from our Under $100 box that features local affordable unframed artwork for sale. Support your local gallery and artists by having a browse and maybe even making a purchase.
