As Rockhampton Art Gallery prepares for its exciting $31.5M relocation and redevelopment along Quay Street, we are opening our doors wide open to visitors and flipping our collection ‘inside out’. Over the next few months, Rockhampton Art Gallery is offering an exclusive opportunity for visitors to experience the ‘behind the scenes’ action of collection management and witness firsthand the operations of our dedicated team.
Within our exhibition spaces you might see our Curatorial and Collections staff and volunteers researching, condition reporting, conserving or packaging some of the over two-thousand artworks which encompass the Rockhampton Art Gallery’s nationally significant Collection. Our friendly team members are prepped to answer your questions and would be eager to discuss the Gallery’s exciting upcoming projects and opportunities as we move towards opening our new Gallery space in Rockhampton’s Cultural Precinct.
With dimmer lighting, more work benches and artworks hung on racks rather than walls, we aim to make our transition to the New Rockhampton Art Gallery as seamless and transparent as possible. Be sure to check into the exhibition space regularly, as the collection artworks on display will change frequently. It is an exciting time for Rockhampton Art Gallery and we hope to share the journey with you every step of the way!
