GRAG reopens with contrasting exhibitions

Published on Tuesday, 18 August 2020 at 1:55:24 PM

This Friday Geraldton Regional Art Gallery (GRAG) will throw open its’ doors to celebrate the opening of two new and contrasting exhibitions.

Expect to see a lot of rugged survival gear, high performance materials and specialist technology in Preppers. This exhibition considers the anxieties, paranoia, absurdities and hopes of many doomsday preppers.

A group of 14 contemporary Aboriginal artists consider space, time and the Australian landscape in Void. These themes are explored through drawings, sculptures, paintings and video works.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said he looks forward to opening night.

“We can’t wait to welcome people back to GRAG this Friday as it reopens after closing due to COVID-19 restrictions,” he said.

“It’s great that the community can come together and celebrate the opening of two diverse exhibitions.

“Both shows have timely themes, so I encourage you to take your time exploring and considering the artworks in Preppers and Void.

GRAG’s opening commences at 6pm on Friday 21 August and RSVP is essential due to COVID-19 restrictions. Secure your spot by clicking here.
