If you’re at a loose end this weekend, why not plan a family outing to the Ipswich Art Gallery!
This much-loved local gallery is home to constantly rotating exhibitions showcasing local and international artists.
The gallery is also a social history museum with heritage displays, regular educational workshops, a beautiful children’s gallery, and immersive school holiday programs.
In October, the gallery will have two exhibitions on display – the first is Art in Conflict, a collection of diverse responses to war through photography, paintings, drawings, and sculptures. The second exhibition, DiverseCity: New Work by Jason McNamara, showcases the works of self-taught photographer and Ipswich local, Jason McNamara. His interest in Ipswich and the surrounding region led to his series of photographic portraits exploring the diverse social landscape of Ipswich.
The gallery is free to visit and open seven days a week. To find out more about the gallery and what’s showing, head to https://www.ipswichartgallery.qld.gov.au/
