Our Vision

To develop the Arts and in particular Sculpture so that Tourism will become a major product of the Forbes Shire and Central West NSW


Our objectives are to:

  • To establish a permanent world class sculpture trail from Forbes to Condobolin
    via the Lachlan Valley Way (formerly South Condobolin Road)

  • to foster the visual arts, and to encourage their enjoyment in the communities of our region and tourists passing through the region

  • Develop and nurture a fellowship of artists

  • Run classes, workshops and demonstrations for members and the community of the region

  • Provide and maintain a studio where the fellowship may meet and where the teaching and learning in above may take place

  • Support the development, maintenance and operation of an Art Gallery

  • Run competitions and exhibitions to be displayed in the Gallery or other suitable locations

  • Seek appropriate funding including grants, sponsorships and the charging of fees

  • Funds raised by events and activities must be of the highest quality and be consistent with our vision

  • Exhibit our art for display and/or sale

  • Liaise and affiliate with any organisation supporting our objectives and to carry out other activities consistent with the Aim and Objectives  B A C K
