The Queensland Palette

by Christine Reilly

Christine Reilly is a respected and imaginative Queensland artist with nearly 30 years’ experience both in-front and behind the canvas. Christine draws inspiration from  everywhere; her work demonstrates a long-held love of travel, people-watching, local city scenes and beachscapes.

“My paintings will take you on a journey across the figurative, from my interpretation of vibrant European scenes to evocative images closer to home. I strive to portray all of my characters with colour and movement- making them come alive on the canvas.”

Chris creates from her studio in Brisbane and with her daughter, Rebecca Reilly, now residing in Tambo an exhibition at Grasslands was a natural progression. ‘The Queensland Palette’ will showcase Christine’s talent with a diverse range of works that reflect local content from both Tambo and Brisbane.

The exhibition will close at the beginning of November.

View the full program.

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.
