Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened September 14 in 1983. Thirty years later an exhibition featuring the work of 29 designer makers and artists will open that does not look to the past, but to the future. The title of the exhibition is NEXT. This is something all involved ponder, not only the very nature of the objects they design and make, but possible new directions for their practice and indeed their lives.

A BUNGENDORE WOOD WORKS GALLERY 30TH YEAR ANNIVERSARY EXHIBITIONRead more
Thirty years is a milestone in anyone’s terms. For a commercial gallery to run for thirty years is a great achievement – one worth acknowledging and celebrating.
Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened in September 1983. The Gallery’s aims have remained consistent throughout the intervening years, although of course things have changed – including moving to new and especially designed premises.
Bungendore Wood Works continues to promote and support the designing and making of fine woodwork and David Mac Laren’s generosity and generosity of spirit infuses the gallery and all those involved with it.
Next is an exhibition that celebrates the past thirty years, but with its gaze very firmly in the future. The word ‘next’ is imbued with anticipation, excitement and the unknown.Read more

A Bungendore Wood Works Gallery 30th Year Anniversary Exhibition.
When Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened its new doors to the current Gallery in 1994, Pamela Griffith was the first visual artist to grace the walls of the upstairs, exhibition specific Octagon ArtSpace.
Two years earlier she had opened her woodworking brother Andrew Gittoes’ exhibition in the original Wood Works Gallery located in the historic Bungendore Store just across the road. A widely known and acclaimed artist, Pamela’s printmaking and painting skills have been apparent in the Gallery ever since, including her four solo and three group exhibitions.Read more
