Orbost Exhibition Centre on the Snowy Information
Located in temperate rainforest country in Victoria's Far East Gippsland. The small town of Orbost is the gateway to the wonderful Wilderness Coast. Orbost is about a 45 minute drive from Lakes Entrance. The Orbost Woodworkers and artisans have built a $2 million Exhibition Centre, which is a work of art in itself.
Designed to showcase local timbers, the OEC is the permanent home of the National Collection of Wood Design which features wood art. One - three pieces are added to the collection every year though an Acquisition Prize. As of 2008 the collection has 35 outstanding wood pieces - mainly from Australian Timbers and recycled timbers.
The OEC has a large retail area full of wooden and other artworks - sculptures, bowls, boxes, furniture, jewellery and other unique craftwork all made by local artists.
The OEC has a gallery featuring different monthly art exhibitions and will, in November 2008 see the exceptional Talking Wall Project open - a visual story of the Snowy River from its beginnings - thousands of years ago - to modern time, painted by local artists of Orbost and surrounds.
The Orbost Exhibition Centre houses great wood and art and is a must for inclusion on anyone's itinerary for the region.
