From Past to Present by Sydney artist, Georgina Hart, will be on display at Grasslands until the beginning of October.
Georgina’s style is ever evolving and she seeks to express the joys of love, friendship and happiness with compositions celebrating the simple things in life. Each painting tells its own story and often reflects her own life experiences.
Motherhood and friendship are a constant source of inspiration.
The exhibition opened on Saturday August 10th and was a well attended event despite the cold weather. Georgina held a two day workshop during her visit to Tambo, sharing her techniques and ideas with our local artists.
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.
