Ararat Arts Precinct Redevelopment


A new video has just been completed of the redevelopment for the  Ararat Arts Precinct.
Some of it was filmed during our inspection at the end of July. Those who are familiar with the inside of the Gallery will see a lot of changes.

Ararat Arts Precinct Redevelopment Photos

The redevelopment works at the Ararat Arts Precinct are well underway. The Project Control Group had its first inspection at the end of July. I was surprised by how much work had already been undertaken inside the Town Hall, but there is a ban on sharing any images of the inside works on social media. Due to that here are some photos of the slab for the new gallery and public toilets that were poured the day before.
Its difficult to judge the scale as the site is so large and we were unable to walk over the new area. Those of you who have been regular visitors to the gallery can see that the entrance to the new space has been moved down to opposite the council offices.
The new entrance will be where the door into the arts workshop had previously been.
Passing through Ararat yesterday I noticed that the frame and roof have been erected. Our next inspection shall be in a couple of weeks. Exciting times!

'Kylie On Stage' Coming to Ararat in 2018

After what seems like years of planning, work on the redevelopment of the Ararat Arts Precinct has finally begun.
This is an exciting time for the Ararat Regional Art Gallery as it will be the first major changes in gallery exhibition space and a new storage area in 49 years.
You can view the plans for the redevelopment here.
The gallery is currently closed and the renovations are scheduled to be completed in time for the galleries 50th birthday celebrations. The 'Kylie on Stage' exhibition will be one of the first exhibitions to be shown in the new gallery. These are photos that I took of the exhibition at the Arts Center late last year.
