The biennial Create from a Crate competition and exhibition brings together some of Australia's most talented woodworkers, designers and artists, who have risen to the challenge of making a beautiful object or furniture from two rough and discarded timber pallets.

Designed to shine a spotlight on the environmental impact of timber packaging waste, the biennial Create from a Crate Exhibition will demonstrate that waste timbers can be a valuable resource material when handled by skilled craftspeople.  

Create from a Crate is a collaboration between The Victorian Woodworkers Association and timber packaging recycler, Waste Converters.  Exhibition supported by Banyule City Council, Hatch Contemporary Arts Space and Effective Freight Management.


The 2015 Banyule Award for Works on Paper Finalists' Exhibition 

14 October - 12 December 2015  (gallery open Tuesday - Saturday) 10am - 5pm

The Banyule Award for Works on Paper is a $4000 acquisitive prize awarded biennially to an outstanding contemporary work on paper.

The Banyule Art Collection is a contemporary collection of art works by leading and emerging Australian artists. While it includes a range of media it is distinguished by its collection of works on paper. The Banyule Award for Works on Paper capitalises upon this strength by developing this aspect of the collection further.

In 2015, the curatorial theme for the Banyule Award is In Space and each artwork reflects the artist’s personal interpretation of this theme.

Congratulations to the Winner of the 2015 Banyule Award for Works on Paper: Simon Finn, for his work Steady State Intervention (2015).
