‘Recovering The Past‘ is a unique photographic exhibition of
25 thought provoking images.
This exhibition brings together two separate groups of men
with origins a century apart but who are united through conflict.
Accompanied by thought-provoking quotes sourced from Australia’s archives, this timely exhibition raises the profile of the traumatizing impact of the Great War as suffered by Australia’s grieving women and its returned soldiers.
The exhibition opened on October 1st and will close on November 24th.
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 programming is managed by the Tambo Arts Council in a collaboration with the Blackall-Tambo Regional Council’s Arts and Cultural Officer.
The Gallery offers a large community workshop and meeting space that is well equipped for a range of events and activities. The Foyer area provides further display space and has a small shop selling artisan products and giftware. 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.
