Australien Future - tales of migration (13 April – 25 May)
An exhibition of paintings, film footage and sculptural installation examining migration by artist Deb Mostert. Imagery is drawn from her family’s migration in the 1950s, overlaid with the migration stories of our shorebirds. This exhibition is supported with funding by Arts Queensland - Queensland Arts Showcase Program.

Intercity Images 2019 (13 April – 25 May)Photographers of the Gladstone Region have captured the spirit of Central Queensland's lifestyle, people and environment for the annual photographic exchange between the Sister Cities of Gladstone Region and Saiki City, Japan.

Submerged: Stories of Australia's Shipwrecks (30 March – 4 May)
Submerged is presented by the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Australian Maritime Museums Council membership and is the result of a national project with workshops held across the country to develop the exhibition and to source shipwreck stories. 68 shipwreck stories were nominated by 46 maritime museums and heritage institutions from around Australia with 14 of the most compelling stories selected to feature in the exhibition. This exhibition is supported by Visions of Australia, a Government program aiming to improve access to cultural material with a focus on regional and remote Australia. GRAGM has partnered with the Gladstone Maritime Museum to showcase maritime treasures from our region.
