The Art Bus

The Art Bus is a new and exciting project from ANCA Inc.

Once a Transport Canberra workhorse now retired and retrofit into a contemporary gallery space exhibiting and travelling around the A.C.T.

Come find us and say hello!

Nov 3rd – 25th – Ruby Berry – Enclose – Garema Place


Softening the walls with dense weavings and tactile forms, Ruby Berry’s Art Bus combines installation and sculptural works to create a space that encourages feelings of comfort and protection.


Join textile artist Ruby Berry for a free hands-on weaving workshop. Play with colours and textures to create small tapestry weavings to take home. 

Dec 1st – 20th – Dionisia Salas – Heartbeat – City Walk


Dionisia Salas’ exhibition will be an analysis of traditional European wall paper through a contemporary lense, utilizing collage, printmedia and paint.


The free workshops that accompany this exhibition will be an exploration of collage, with participants generating their own material on site using spirographs, frotage and other mark making fun.

Jan 10th – 27th– Tom Buckland – Work, Lovelife, Miscellaneous – Civic Square


Musing upon the many absurd complexities of modern life, Canberra artist, inventor and birdwatcher Tom Buckland presents a bus load of weird and humorous interactive sculpture all constructed from household detritus and found objects.


Canberra artist, inventor and birdwatcher Tom Buckland will teach you for free to use recycled cardboard to create beautiful three-dimensional birds. All ages are welcome, build beautiful cardboard cockatoos, cassowaries and kookaburras. The sky is the limit!

As part of each of these artist’s exhibitions in the Art Bus, they will be accompanied by a set of weekend drop in workshops, 2pm – 3pm on Saturdays and 2pm – 4pm on Sundays, aimed at all ages. 

This exciting venture is still in its early stages, but please keep your eyes on the ANCA facebook and instagram page for updates as the Art Bus comes to life!



This event has been made possible with support from the ACT Government under the City Renewal Authority’s City Grants Program.
