Visit the Gallery & Museum Before These Exhibitions Close
Two exhibitions currently on display at the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum are winding down for their last days. 'A Place to Call Home? Migrant Hostel Memories' and 'GRAGM Curated: A bit of everything' will both close at the end of the month.
For many migrants after World War II, for better or worse, hostels were their first ‘homes’. 'A Place to Call Home? Migrant Hostel Memories' is a touring exhibition developed by the National Archives of Australia which rekindles memories with vivid photographs of life in Australia’s migrant hostels.
Alongside these large panel photographs, a computer is available with a connection to the National Archives of Australia's website, Destination: Australia (destinationaustralia.gov.au). Here, visitors have the opportunity to browse more than 21,000 images of migrants from around the world after World War II, adding their own tags and memories. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government's Visions of Australia program.
'GRAGM Curated: A bit of everything' is an eclectic display of artworks created by Gallery & Museum staff and volunteers, featuring old and new works in a variety of media and levels of experience. The exhibition is a celebration of local people united by an unquenchable thirst for art and a love of all things creative.
