Rocky Art Gallery temporarily closed

ROCKHAMPTON Art Gallery will close for around seven weeks as repairs related to damage from Cyclone Marcia is carried out.

The Art Gallery's exhibition schedule has meant this is the first opportunity to undertake the repair work, whilst minimising inconvenience to the public.

After the repair work, the Anderson Room will become a permanent home for exhibitions from the Gallery's growing art collection. 

It will also welcome home the travelling exhibition Cream: Four decades of Australian art for an encore display from March 29 to September 4.

The gallery will close from October 26 and reopen December 12 with two exciting new exhibitions.

The reopening will also coincide with a free family day on December 12 (11am-2pm).    

 

New Exhibitions

Fantastic Worlds: Contemporary Australian Sculpture - December 12 to February 14

Right Here, Right Now: Contemporary works from the collection - December 12 to March 20
