Display of arts and crafts in New Italy New glass art shop and gallery in South Wales

Gurrigai Aboriginal Arts and Crafts opened at the New Italy Brown Sign link site next to the museum in 1992, exhibiting and selling Aboriginal art work, jewellery, and clothing.

Gurrigai Aboriginal Arts and Crafts no longer exists as it was not making enough sales to keep it viable. I don’t know when it closed but it was deregistered as a business in 2008.

The brown sign for it still remains on the highway (as of July 2019). Whether it remains with the upgrades to the highway is unlikely if the brown sign is updated or relocated.

Currently, the shop is now the Glass Art Shop & Gallery. With people coming in and asking about Gurrigai, they keep some Aboriginal items for sale and display from artists in surrounding areas, such as Byron Bay.

To get there:

While Gurrigai Aboriginal Arts and Crafts is closed, the Glass Art Shop & Gallery is operating in its place and is on the New Italy Museum Brown Sign link site which is still open and operating.

From the north, after leaving Woodburn, continue on the highway for about 10km with the Arts and Craft at New Italy on the right.

From the south, after crossing over the Clarence River near Maclean, continue on the highway for about 27km with the Arts and Craft at New Italy on the left.
