BACKWOODS GALLERY PROJECTS
As well as being a physical place, Backwoods Gallery is a vessel for ongoing artistic and cultural creation. We create events, programs and projects in order to explore our interests, support creative endeavour and connect with our community, who are important to us. This is something we will continue to nurture and allow to grow alongside our core gallery operations. We welcome invitations to connect and collaborate through events, programs and projects that will benefit our artists, collectors and like-minded followers.
