Exhibitions & Events Archive


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.

14 September – 6 November 2013
