Christmas Exhibition

December 2019
Each year the Tambo Arts Council hold a Christmas themed exhibition and competition at the Grassland Art Gallery involving the local community.
This year promises to be spectacular.

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 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.
