Goombungee, Jan. 24, 2024 – Rosalie Gallery in Goombungee welcomes the new year with an exhilarating launch of its 2024 program, featuring the captivating “Pittsworth Perspectives” exhibition and the engaging “The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour” children’s art activities.

Pittsworth Perspectives: Unveiling Community Artistry

The “Pittsworth Perspectives” exhibition takes centre stage, showcasing carefully selected works from the Pittsworth Community Collection.

On display until February 4, 2024, the exhibition invites art enthusiasts to explore the rich tapestry of artistic expression within the community.

Each unique story collectively weaves a narrative that reflects the vibrancy of local artists.

The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour: A Creative Extravaganza for Children

Running concurrently with the exhibition, “The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour” brings a unique opportunity for families and children to immerse themselves in art-making activities.

Led by contemporary Australian artist Natalya Hughes, the program offers a delightful journey into the world of ‘grotesque’ design—a tradition celebrated for its hybridity.

Children are encouraged to unleash their creativity by crafting digital hybrid creatures, assembling 3D objects, creating intricate patterns with printed paper, and exploring self-portrait drawing activities.

Hughes, known for her diverse artistic expressions, infuses elements of Australian flora and fauna from her Brisbane suburb of Tarragindi into the project.

Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art’s Regional Initiative

“The Castle of Tarragindi on Tour” is part of a broader regional initiative by the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA).

Director Chris Saines expressed excitement about the free program, set to unfold across more than 200 regional and remote venues throughout Queensland from January to June 2024.

The initiative aims to engage diverse communities, from Boigu Island to Birdsville and beyond.

Rosalie Gallery invites the community to embark on this artistic journey, celebrating local talent, engaging young minds, and fostering a love for the arts that resonates across the region.

The 2024 program promises to set the stage for a year filled with creativity, inspiration, and cultural enrichment.
