The ephemeral installation of a Giant Rainbow Serpent (below) was created by GANEAA artist David Godkin & embellished by the children & adults of the Wangaratta community around the Elders Rock at Apex Park in May.
All who witnessed will agree it was a beautiful piece of community art!
Don’t miss the next GANEAA members exhibition, being held at the Wangaratta Visitor Information Centre gallery space this June.
Marisa Quigley, Racheal Butler & children from Wangaratta’s Chisholm Street School recently composed and performed their song ‘Bullawah Trail’ at The Elders Rock for GANEAA’s official opening of the Giant Rainbow Serpent Ground Drawing.
The students worked with Marisa & Racheal to write this wonderful song based on the Dreamtime Stories from Uncle Freddie Dowling’s book Granpa Milawa Stories. It’s a ripper & we hope they record it!

In this GANEAA member only workshop with Maggie Hollins you will collect wind fallen leaves, learn the basics of eco dyeing and create eco printed paper that can be incorporated into your art works. The venue will be at the beautiful Winton Wetlands. During the afternoon The Friends of Winton Wetlands will give a brief talk on the wetlands.
