Earth Canvas receives Grant

Local MP Sussan Ley has announced two major grants to help foster the arts scene in the Albury-Wodonga region.

$45k has been awarded to Albury’s Library Museum to help foster their collaboration with ‘Earth Canvas’, which links artists and regenerative farming.

The aim is to share the vision and creativity of local farmers and their environment, with the artist’s impression of that same landscape.
