In 1996, Walcha Council was approached by Stephen King, a local farmer and sculptor, to collaborate with him to create a fountain sculpture for McHattan Park in the centre of town. The decision to accept his offer and install Walcha's first sculpture lead to the suggestion by Council to form the Walcha Arts Council to facilitate an ongoing public art program.
A plan was conceived and drawn up by the Walcha Arts Council and was adopted by Council into its 1998 Management Plan. The concept came to be known as the Open Air Gallery.
Currently, the collection consists of 54 sculptures and artworks by local, national and international artists. Take a stroll around the streets and along the river to enjoy the wonderful variety of works on permanent public display.
Open 7 days, 24 hours a day, with the exception of one work inside the Council building.
