Past Exhibitions


Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum (GRAGM) selects exhibition in several strategic ways that reflect community desires and tourism drivers, while maintaining our commitment to growing and developing regional creative talent.  We also introduce our audiences to cultural content from other regional and national centres to continue to broaden their knowledge and experiences.

If you're interested in exhibiting at GRAGM, visit http://gragm.qld.gov.au/about/exhibiting-at-gragm and complete an application form.  These are assessed by our curatorial team and selected based upon prescribed criteria.

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST for the 2021 year have now closed.  We'll be opening another round later in 2021 for 2022 calendar year.  Thanks to all those artists and creatives who have submitted applications.
