St Arnaud Raillery Hub Inc.
The Raillery Hub at the beautifully restored St Arnaud Railway station brings together established and emerging artists, and creatives from across the region. A multi room exhibition space, with a permanent sculpture garden and Creatives and Produce shop representing a stable of more than 30 talented local artists and producers, the St Arnaud Raillery hub has set a benchmark for the reclamation of decommissioned railway stations, and the repurposing of these formerly derelict buildings as community run gallery spaces.
Over the Tiny Towns Arts Trail weekend Gallery 1 and 2 will be hosting the exhibition, Natural Fibres & Exotic Threadz, featuring textile works from artists Sally Wright, Judith Church, Nancy Pritchard, Dawn lim, Ally Wright and Ashlee Medlyn.
Gallery 3 and hub shop will be exhibiting sculpture and artworks, in a range of mediums by artists Richard Bazeley, Gabrielle Rohlje, Peter Tanczos, Bernard Quince, Lynnette Robinson, Jake, Jasmine, Leah and Donald Berry, Anne Bateup. Julia Morant, Judith Church, Rosetta Day, Bernie Dodds, Delecia Marquand, Terrence Borg, Rebecca Warr, Will Pout and Peter Revelman.
On Saturday 23 April, Kara Kara Vineyard will be serving wine and cheese tasting plates and for all the flower lovers out there you will have the chance to pick up a prized orchid from the orchid sale on at the hub over the trail weekend.
