Current and Upcoming Exhibitions

The Walkway Gallery and NOFASD Australia are calling upon artists, community groups, and individuals to create art pieces inspired by red shoes for the Red Shoes Rock FASD Art Exhibition at the Walkway Gallery in Tatura.

This project aims to be an exciting celebration of creativity, while raising awareness of FASD, the leading preventable developmental disability in Australia. Artists using all forms of media are invited to explore the theme of red shoes and unleash their creativity. Whether it's through a vibrant painting, a captivating sculpture, or an expressive photograph, each artwork has the potential to illuminate Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in a unique and artistic manner. Embrace your creative spirit and let's unite in using art as a powerful tool to promote awareness and understanding.

How Will It Work?

As an exhibitor, you or your group have the opportunity to showcase your talents and promote your work. Media coverage is expected at the official launch scheduled for September 9, 2024. Artwork will be exhibited throughout the month of September. Artists will be encouraged to have all pieces available for purchase, with proceeds being donated to NOFASD to support individuals affected by FASD and their caregivers. The Walkway Gallery will also contribute the sales commission to NOFASD. To register your artwork, pick up forms from Tatura Community House at 12-16 Casey St Tatura, or download them from www.tatcom.vic.edu.au
