Galleries

The Tableland’s diverse landscape creates breathtaking natural beauty in which colourful villages and bustling towns are nestled. In this clean mountain air, a rich arts community thrives and shares their talents. Artists, potters, photographers, sculptors and teachers create artworks that capture the true heart of the Tablelands. Take home your own piece from one of the studios and shops across the region.

We operate three galleries in the Tablelands Region. Exhibitions are constantly changing and include artworks from local artists, travelling exhibitions, and school and community groups.

Their diversity serves as a testament to the importance of recycled materials as an artistic genre. Artworks include packaging paper,  fabrics, threads, stone, wood, leaves and our environment’s ‘flotsam and jetsam’.
