Welcome to NewArts Inc.

NewArts Inc. is a committee of volunteers with a passion for promoting contemporary art in their home town of Albany, Western Australia. The committee meets regularly to plan and organise the large scale contemporary arts events that it brings to the local community biannually. Notable events have included Paperartzi - a festival that celebrated paper as a resource and source of inspiration, and Sculpture in the Harbour - an event showcasing the work of well-known Western Australian sculptors. In presenting art in public spaces around central Albany, our aim is to increase the local community’s opportunity to see and engage with contemporary art as well as to further NewArts’ mission to develop an audience for a class A gallery in the region.
