Group of People Having Come A Long Way
A group exhibition featuring works on paper by Mornington Island artists: Helena Gabori, Dorothy Gabori, Ethel Thomas, Dolly Loogatha, Amanda Gabori, Amy Loogatha, Elsie Gabori and Netta Loogatha.
Mornington Island Art is a thriving aboriginal art centre located on Mornington Island in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
The exhibition will close in the middle of March 2022.
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.
