* Update 25/03/2020 - please note that the recent government announcement relating to the closure of "Galleries, museums, national institutions and historic sites" is regarding public institutions and not private retail businesses.
The gallery is still open to the public and staff are actively monitoring the situation.
In the interest of public safety, exhibition openings, artist talks and other social gathering are currently cancelled but we are investigating options to digitally deliver information to patrons.
We still intend to have exhibitions for visitors to enjoy but also provide more accompanying online resources to help inform enquiring minds. Information will be posted to our usual mailing list and social media channels.
Until further notice, as a commercial private gallery we'll continue to assist remote indigenous communities and talented local artists that rely on your ongoing support to keep making art that contributes to our cultural identity and enriches us all.
Please show respect at all times by being aware of your personal wellbeing and that of others.
The gallery has increased it’s regular schedule of cleaning and sanitising, and other provisions for visitors but cannot guarantee anything beyond current expectations.
The number of people within the gallery will be limited to allow appropriate social distancing within the available gallery space.
If you wish a private viewing of artworks please ring to make an appointment.
We are trying our best to help artists, patrons and the general public in this difficult situation so please don't hesitate contacting the gallery on +61738915551 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any enquiries.

Roaming The Landscape
I have always painted in response to the world and life around me. Places, landscapes, people and events push me to respond in paint to what I experience, both visually and emotionally. The process of painting for me is an attempt to rework those experiences/memories onto the canvas, looking for something new and beyond the initial or persistent impression. I have painted all my life, taught for various short periods by Andrew Sibley, Mervyn Moriarty and Nevil Matthews. Roaming The Landscape is a collection of works created over the last 12 months while living in and travelling around the Cooloola Coast, the Wide Bay hinterland, and the Kansai region in Japan.
