SAM Local opening night

28 Mar 2018

Join us for the opening of three exhibitions for this year's SAM Local.

SAM Local features three exhibitions. SAM Local Spotlight is an exciting, profile-raising exhibition for a regional artist. The aim of the show is to encourage, stimulate and promote local and regional cultural activities as part of SAM’s annual program. We are proud to announce Kate Hill and Luke Pither as the 2018 SAM Local artists. They will each produce a body of work for the SAM Local exhibition.

SAM Local: Best of Friends is an open access exhibition and it's purpose is to open a window onto the creative practice of many artists working in a range of media in the Goulburn Valley. It is a great way to see what other people are creating and to gain insights into the regional arts sector. Friends are invited to showcase their work at SAM.

The SAM Education Lab will be an evolving exhibition process that will see a range of schools and educational groups work with an artist to transform the gallery space on a weekly basis. Students' work will remain in the gallery space over six weeks, providing them with the opportunity to see their work displayed in the galleries in an open lab-style mode of display. Masato Takasaka is the first practicing artist to take up residency in the Education Lab for six weeks from March 31 – May 13, 2018.
