Since its establishment, the GACL has amassed a valuable archive of information from all its past literary and art events, thus creating a historical record and a valuable archive of the names and works of numerous talented Greek Australian artists.

Michael Winters, Sailing into the depth of time

Building on the success of past exhibitions, the GACL identified the need for a Greek Australian Artist Directory (GAAD) to raise awareness of the artists who have been part of the Australian community, some since early migration. It is important to continue developing this directory and improve access to these artists and their works. Ten of the artists who will be participating in this year’s Antipodean Palette are currently registered with the GAAD.

Marie Petridis, Abstract Formation

The GAAD welcomes both visual and performing artists as well as artists from diverse backgrounds whose work has been inspired by Greek culture, thereby fostering connections and encouraging collaborative relationships within and beyond our community. Its aim is to enhance the visibility, accessibility, and preservation of the cultural identity, value, and history of Greek Australian art.
