This Summer Heralds a New Era for Art in South Eastern NSW. The stunning Sapphire Coast is soon to be home to the new and impressive art gallery, South East Centre for Contemporary Art (SECCA). Set to open to the public on Saturday 18 November, SECCA welcomes enthusiastic art lovers for the prestigious and popular Archibald Prize 2023 with an extraordinary display of 57 portraits, featuring public figures and cultural identities from all walks of life, reflecting the stories of our times. The new-look gallery, in the heart of Bega's CBD, boasts massive windows in the façade which wraps the gallery, allowing glimpses of the exhibitions from the outside. The exhibition space is almost double the size and height of the original gallery and can allow natural light into all areas of the building. The only contemporary art centre in far south eastern NSW, SECCA’s artistic program will deliver an exchange of ideas, exploring divergent political, social, and moral belief systems of artists and audiences from Australia and the Asia Pacific.
