The Grenfell Art Gallery is the home of the Grenfell Community Curtain which permanently occupies the northern wall of the gallery. The curtain is 14 feet high, comprises five panels each which are 5 foot wide. As well as the original, a water colour design hangs in the Weddin Shire Council Chambers and a ceremic representation of the curtain is mounted outside the Grenfell Motel.
The creator of the concept for the curtain, water colour and ceramic painting was Slyvia Brind.
The curtain began it’s journey in the early 1990’s when Sylvia, Grenfell resident and Dramatic Society stalwart, was inspired by a similar project she had seen in the Riverina town of Griffith, so began the idea of creating a ‘community curtain’ as a celebration of the Shire’s rich history. The concept for the curtain was ‘a visual representation of the essence of the Grenfell community’. She had envisaged an opportunity for the community to tell the story of the development of Grenfell and the surrounding shire in a stunning display.
