Do you wish you could stare at this scene all the time, but you don’t live here (yet)? Well not only is there an abundance of breathtaking scenery around Jindabyne and the Snowy Mountains region, but the region is equally abundant in talented photographers and artists inspired to capture it and share it with you.
When you’re visiting the area there are a number of options for you to pop in and view or buy some local photography, arts or crafts. As you head towards Jindabyne from Cooma, there’s Ray Killen Gallery in Berridale, then a detour onto Eucumbene road takes you to Kunama Snowy Mountains Centre for the Arts, formerly the studio of local artist Alan Grosvenor, the Gallery and surroundings will now showcase the work of artists, sculptors and authors. There is also be a permanent exhibition of Alan Grosvenor’s work.
In the National Parks & Wildlife Visitors Centre in Jindabyne you’ll find local arts & crafts, from prints by local landscape photographer Luke Hasaart to the scarves & wraps in silk, wool and cotton by Rasa Mauragis from Snowy Textiles. Each of these textile fashion accessories is a one-of-a-kind piece; eco printed, hand dyed, or naturally dyed using local plants.
When you visit Jindabyne over Easter, you’ll come across the Lake Light Sculpture Festival along with the Art Show and Quilting Exhibition, where you could pick up some seriously crafty souvenirs from your stay!
If you like the images you see throughout this website, you can find comprehensive info on the images and the photographers behind them in our Photographers’ Showcase. Here you can connect with them on their websites and social media so these images can pop up in your feed when you’re procrastinating at your office desk 😉 or better yet, grab a couple of prints for your home or office.
For a different take on these images, try Mandy Lamont’s Little Mountain Lightbox Co – bespoke lightboxes made with recycled timber, either displaying one of her beautiful landscape images or an image or logo that you supply.
