Evolution of Art by Donna Rivers

March 2022 - May 2022
Donna has created a body of work that resembles the relationship of the COVID -19 restrictions and our lifestyle. Her love for colour stands out in her art pieces. She believes that form and colour take place from her surroundings and outback way of life.

2022 - Gallery Program


The Tambo Arts Council have compiled an exciting and diverse program of exhibitions for Grasslands 2021. A program of workshops is being developed.
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.
