Clarence Valley Independent

Art in the Paddock returns to Yulgilbar

Presented by The Gallery Foundation, Art in the Paddock is a unique event where artists from around the region are invited to create, display and sell work in an iconic outdoor location in the Clarence Valley, where the views inspire and feed the soul.

This year Art in the Paddock will be held at Yulgilbar Castle on Sunday 2 June, the second time it has been presented in the beautiful gardens of this historic station that was established in the 1840s by Edward and Frederick Olgilvie.

Highlights of the experience, which can be booked in advance, include taking High Tea on the terrace, and joining tours to the Sketch House (a small historic stone-built rotunda), which is situated on a nearby hilltop, providing a majestic view of the Clarence River.

To gain a deeper understanding of the homestead’s history, guests may book onto one of several tours of the Yulgilbar Station Archives presented by the curator.

As ever, The Gallery Foundation will feature the best regional produce in its lunchtime barbecued fare, including steaks from Holiday Coast Meats and sausages from Mirrabooka Pork.

To round off the afternoon, a ticketed Wine & Cheese sitting will feature fine Peterson’s Wine or a cool Coopers Beer with a platter of tasty morsels on the castle veranda.

Yulgilbar Castle is situated in the Upper Clarence and will feature a licensed bar. To facilitate transport, a coach service has been organised with picks up in Yamba, Maclean and Grafton. The event runs from 11m to 4pm and entry tickets are already more than 75% sold out.
