The Grassland Art Gallery is a public exhibition space located centrally in Tambo and is free to visit.
The front façade of the building references a historical shop that occupied this site in earlier times. The Gallery is the only Council-supported, purpose-built, climate controlled facility within a 300km radius, extending from Longreach to Roma.
The Grassland Art Gallery has a contemporary cool and inviting exhibition area that has a running space of 40 metres. It has a rotating exhibition program of locally produced and curated displays, regional artists and touring exhibitions.
The Gallery offers a large community workshop and meeting space that is well equipped for a range of events and activities. It is the cultural hub that also connects and interacts closely with the historical precinct in presenting Tambo’s rich cultural heritage.
A relaxing courtyard connects the Gallery and workshop spaces. Tambo Arts Council working closely with Council’s Arts & Cultural Officer aim to promote art and employment in the arts in the Region by providing a work space for developing artists and crafts people.
A small shop in the gallery foyer stocks unique handcrafted goods including pewter tableware, art cards, glass art and jewellery. Visitors may find a local landscape, a contemporary work or an item of giftware that will be an exclusive souvenir representative of their Outback trip.
