Friends of the Drill Hall Gallery

Our first Friends evening for 2018 will be Friday 23 March 5-7 pm

This evening will also see the launch of RE IMAGINING THE GALLERY

In 2017 architecture students at the University of Canberra’s Faculty of Arts and Design were set a project, requiring them to design an extension to the ANU Drill Hall Gallery. Their brief was to enhance the precinct, to establish a dedicated space for storage and display of the University’s art collection, and to provide spaces for functions and educational activities.
Nine of these projects have been selected for exhibition at the Drill Hall Gallery. Each will be introduced by a student/architectural visionary and will be on display in the Gallery for 3 or 4 weeks.


Ann Cleary FRAIA | Senior Lecturer in Architecture | Faculty of Arts and Design | University of Canberra will overview this special project
