Description

Every place has its hidden treasures...

Every Understory artwork has been specifically commissioned to respond directly to Northcliffe’s 'spirit of place'. Each work is a unique exploration of our human relationship with nature. These world-class artworks are the key to discovering the natural environment from a fresh perspective. When imagination is the guide – the heart is free to connect.

ABOUT US – SOUTHERN FOREST ARTS
Understory is managed by Southern Forest Arts - a 'not for profit' community cultural organisation. Understory and its companion, The Painted Tree Gallery, were established in November 2006, and are located within the award-winning eco-friendly Northcliffe Information & Visitor Centre. The Southern Forest Arts team are inspired by the diverse beauty of the ancient forests that surround Northcliffe, and the ingenuity and character of the individuals and community that live beneath the canopy. The group explores, celebrates and promotes the unique local identity of the region with imagination and heart.

THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING NEW TO SEE
New artworks are added to the Understory trail regularly to ensure there is always something fresh for visitors to experience. The Gallery also showcases a range of exhibitions across the year featuring a wide range of media and themes, including state and national touring shows as well as work by local artisans.
