Maree Angus is a contemporary realist artist, living and working in Central Queensland, Australia. Through her skills in portraiture, figure studies, landscapes and still life, she shares the beauty she witnesses in her world.
Growing up on cattle properties in the Mackay hinterland has given Maree a love of the landscape and animals.
This appreciation in turn helps in achieving a good likeness and capturing the real character of the person, animal and landscape. Maree Angus has created an exhibition of works that reflect her joy of country living and appreciation of her surroundings.
The exhibition opened on Saturday March 21st.
A pastels workshop with Maree is planned for May 23 & 24.
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.
