The Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) is inviting expressions of interest (EOIs) for 2022 exhibitions in their three galleries.

Councillor Peter Hodge said that groups and individuals can apply to exhibit in the Tableland’s Regional Gallery, the Old Post Office Gallery, or the Foyer Gallery.

“We’re keen to see EOIs from new individuals and groups, and we encourage artists from outside our region, as well as locals, to apply,” he said.

“Exhibition, gallery and application information are available on our website, and expressions of interest must be received by 5pm Friday 30 April.”

Local artist Rob Mian who has lived on the Tablelands for 30 years believes artists should exhibit to share their vision and creative energy with others.

“I have held at least a dozen solo and group exhibitions in TRC galleries, and also exhibited in Brisbane, Townsville and in various galleries in Cairns,” he said.

“Exhibiting in a gallery is important to artists, especially those who work alone in studios.

“It allows them to review their body of work in a public space, engage with the public and get valuable feedback.”

Rob said local exhibitions are a great opportunity for artists to network with like-minded people and for them to feel validated regardless of saleability.

“Being an artist can be difficult at times, it requires energy dedication and ongoing passion,” he said.

“Despite this, the creative journey is wonderful and there is always something new to learn, investigate and share.”
