Want to be part of the Manning Regional Art Gallery Wall Project?

The Wall Project is a public project allowing local artists to explore, collaborate and showcase their artistic skills in an interactive environment: one of the Gallery’s internal walls during opening hours.

Emerging and established Artists are invited to submit a proposal which explores any theme during gallery opening hours for a period of 2 to 3 weeks. The artist or artists will utilise the space, creating work and encouraging audience interaction. 

Proposals must demonstrate a high level of technical skill, with consideration to safe installation and engagement with audiences. All mediums are welcome. The WALL is the wall opposite the kitchenette in the Gallery and is available in 2/3 weekly blocks starting June 2016.  For example: Jocelyn Maughan will start the project during the Robin Norling Exhibition with the wall covered in watercolour paper. Maughan will paint a large work, and smaller landscapes/portraits over 3 weeks, interacting with visitors to the gallery.

Criteria for determining successful proposals include

  • Proposals that promote artistic exploration, interaction with audiences, artistic excellence in visual arts practice (in any suitable medium)
  • Proposals which are conceptually sound and are appropriate for public display
  • Work that is professionally presented and demonstrates a high level of technical skill
  • Capacity of the project to engage with audiences


Exhibition proposals will be assessed by the MRAG Gallery Team. Approved applications will need to follow a risk assessment. The WALL will need to be returned to its original condition by the artist(s). The gallery reserves the right to document the process of the project and to promote the project through the press and social media. One submission per artist or group.
