Rockhampton, Rockhampton Area

28 March - 15 June

07 4936 8248


Since the 1970s Rockhampton Art Gallery has collected art from some of Australia's best-known painters - but unknown to many is their large collection of prints. This exhibition investigates raw expression, abstraction, colour and form in their print collection.

At the junction of ancient and modern, Australian abstraction exploded in the 1970s - the decade on which this exhibition focuses. Come and experience their mysterious curves and textures; once more in the limelight.

Artists in Strange Arrangements include Alun Leach-Jones, Bill Meyer, David Aspden, Diana Davidson, David Rankin, John Peart and Victor Majzner.
