Our Colourful Station Life

by Ruth Chaplain

Every exhibition changes the feel of Grasslands and this time the gallery has literally been transformed with a display of vibrant colour, Ruth uses a palette of strong purples, bright teals, lively oranges and yellows to depict scenes of country life. 

There is something for everyone in the exhibition, there are scenes of children, chooks, horses, sunsets and landscapes. Ruth paints in acrylics as she loves the depth and richness of colour this medium produces, her the art works are on canvas and are beautifully framed by her husband giving them a very polished finish.

The exhibition opened on March 26th and will close on June 4th, 2021.

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.
