Grassland Art Gallery and Community Services
The Grassland Art Gallery opened in November 2009 and is being managed by the Tambo Arts Council as a collaborative partnership with the Blackall-Tambo Regional Council.
Tambo Arts Council working closely with the Community Facilitator has compiled an exciting and diverse calendar of exhibitions showcasing local western artists as well as introducing the Community to differing art forms and media.
The committee of the Grassland Art Gallery aim to promote art and employment in the arts in the Region by providing a work space for developing artists and crafts people.
The Tambo Community Services offers a wide range of services to the community:
IN THE GALLERY...
IN THE FOYER...
‘Sea It’ is a two and three dimensional exhibition by the Tambo State School High School Students. In this exhibition the students have explored the depths of the ocean, its imaginary creatures and the colours of the seas and how they influence the animal and its surroundings.
‘Jellyfish Invasion’ a sculpture by Hayden Johnson uses the analogous colours of green, blue and yellow to create his round jellyfish, the concept being that it ‘ate the world’ and the world is primarily these toning, the lines and shapes of the fish are natural and fit in with the curve of the world.
Similarly Clohe Smith’s ‘Soft Serve’ fantasy fish has contrasting and analogous colours that represent vibrant scoops of ice cream, and inorganic lines and shapes emphasizing the fantasy.
The two dimensional works on canvas are exceptional and could be exhibited in any gallery
With their teacher, Miss Fox, the students have created a catalogue of the works and the artist’s statements that narrate the exhibition and its ocean depths. This exhibition is more than just a display, it is an experience!!! Call into the gallery before the end of May to make sure you SEE IT!!!
