Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum, Cnr Goondoon and Bramston Str, Gladstone
Monday – Sat 10 am – 5 pm
The gallery has acquired the work ‘First Home Gladstone’ for their collection and it’s very fitting it remain with the gallery as it depicts the house my dad’s family settled in on arrival from the Netherlands in 1955. The house no longer exists but it remains a part of the history of Gladstone. My family gifted the gallery with a copy of my Grandfathers film which documented the whole journey from Rotterdam to Gladstone and from which many of the paintings in this exhibition were based on.
Thanks to all of the 200 people who attended opening night at Redland Art Gallery… it was very lovely to share that with you. The Shore Birds exhibition also looked wonderful and it is a lovely accompaniment as we discuss the vulnerability of our migrating shorebirds as well as our shared migration stories.
Thanks to Louise Martin-Chew for opening with Professor Richard Fuller, School of Biological Sciences, University of Queensland.
