SAM Local

Quick Info

2 March – 7 April 2019
Shepparton Art Museum, 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton


SAM Local Spotlight is an opportunity for an artist to exhibit a body of work at SAM. It is an exciting, profile-raising exhibition for a regional artist. The aim of the show is to encourage, stimulate and promote local and regional cultural activities as part of SAM’s annual program. This is also great opportunity to gain professional experience working in an art museum context - working with SAM‘s team across curatorial, marketing and communications, registration, education and public programs, and much more.

Best of Friends

Best of Friends is an open access exhibition and all Friends of SAM are encouraged to submit work. The exhibition’s purpose is to open a window onto the creative practice of many artists working in a range of media in the Goulburn Valley. It‘s a great way to see what other people are making and gain insights into the regional arts sector.

Education Lab

Students, teachers and the Greater Shepparton Community are invited to participate in the 2019 SAM Education Lab with artist and landscape designer Heather Hesterman.

Hesterman’s art practice investigates the intersection of place, ecology, education and science via practices of installation and collaboration.
