Injune Residents to welcome new art gallery this Friday

Join the Injune community next Friday, 30 October in celebrating the official opening of the much-anticipated Injune Creek Gallery.

With doors open at 6pm, the new space will be christened with its first exhibition on display, John Morrison’s ‘Gateway to the Outback’, a nostalgic compilation of outback paintings.

The new purpose built and designed facility is a creative space that will provide the community with a communal area, used to host a variety of exhibitions for residents and visitors to enjoy year-round.

Councillor Wendy Newman, Portfolio Chair for Facilities said the new building is a highly-anticipated addition to Injune and its streetscape.

"The precinct incorporates the Library, Council Office, Café and Visitor Information Centre, and with the addition of the gallery, this is truly a multi-purpose hub for the community to use into the future," Cr Newman said.

"As well as being functional, the building has been beautifully designed with timber cladding to keep with the theme of the surrounding structures."

"The project came to fruition after extensive consultation between Council, residents and architects. The designs for the space were developed and workshopped, with the final building a great achievement for all involved!"

Please contact Maranoa Regional Council on 1300 007 662 to confirm your attendance.

If you can’t make it to the opening, be sure to take a trip to Injune to visit the new gallery, opening hours are: Monday – Friday 8.20am – 5.00pm. Don’t miss out - the ‘Gateway to the Outback’ exhibition will be on display until January.

Construction of the facility was funded by the Maranoa Regional Council, Santos GLNG and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
