Gallery Hinchinbrook was opened in June 1999 by the Hinchinbrook Shire Council and is housed in the TAFE-Library complex also opened in 1999. It is therefore a very modern and highly secure exhibition room boasting specifications of international standard. The Gallery is owned by the Barrier Reef Institute of TAFE and is leased and administered by the council in conjunction with the Friends of Gallery Hinchinbrook Association Inc, a voluntary association. In keeping with the Gallery objectives, local artists and curators are encouraged to utilise the exhibition space and every effort is made to assist them to extend their art practice and explore professional exhibition techniques. All exhibitors and curators are encouraged and assisted to present their work to schools and community groups through educational programs and public workshops.
The Gallery houses small travelling exhibitions throughout the year. These are advertised on our website.
