Opening night celebration Friday 29 October, 6pm

Arts Yackandandah is super excited to welcome back our Fresh and Unframed art exhibition this year after a three-year hiatus.
A celebration of human creativity and community, Fresh and Unframed showcases artworks by current and emerging artists at affordable prices.

This year’s event will take a new direction, with entrants encouraged to enter works that reflect the theme, “To everything there is a season.” The theme can be interpreted in any way the artist chooses and entrants vie for the $500 Haldane Slatter Memorial Art Award as well as the People’s Choice Award.

To enter your artwork in Fresh and Unframed 2021, download the terms of entry and an entry form or email helenmaccalman@gmail.com for a form. Entries are due by 20 October, 2021.

Arts Yackandandah is a community arts organisation that celebrates and supports creativity, artistic talent, and cultural expression within the Yackandandah community, as well as from further afield.

After a year of responding to crisis, staying apart, and putting almost a whole year’s worth of creative content on hold, the Yackandandah arts community is bursting to roll out an extensive program in 2021. 

Our film club, Flickside, lit up the screen again from March 2021. Locally produced radio play, From Here to There, was broadcast on our local radio station, Indigo FM. And the Yackandandah Theatre Company hosted a series of writing workshops with a view to creating its next monologue radio play.

We did our best to welcome the Melbourne Chamber Orchestra back to town in September 2021, however lockdown got in the way of that plan…but we’ll look forward to seeing the MCO in 2022! Our team has hosted a series of live musical performances by musicians from across the state.

Our creative groups, Ukendandah, and the Yackandandah Writers Group, are back in action and we’re brainstorming what the much-loved Yackandandah Community Choir might look like in 2022. Watch this space!

* All Arts Yackandandah events will be undertaken in accordance with the COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines of the time, and patron and artist safety will remain our highest priority.
