The American Australian Association is hosting a unique Arts Showcase at Olsen Gruin Gallery to highlight the depth of talent of our diverse American-Australian Arts Fund alum. The showcase will feature exhibitions from a selection of visual artists, musical performances and a fiber art workshop conducted by Lucy Wanapuyngu who practices and teaches fiber art in the Aboriginal community of Gapuwiyak in northeast Arnhem Land, Australia.

Each of the featured artists has been the beneficiary of an American-Australian Arts Fund grant. The Fund was established in 1998 to provide grants to emerging Australian and American artists who show great talent in the fields of theater, dance, film & television, music, literary arts, visual arts, fashion, crafts and design.
