Current Exhibition

OUR LIVING HERITAGE

Our Living Heritage was launched by the Regional Arts Council of Dalby Inc in September 2000.  In April 1999, Mr Richard Hooke was given the task of Photographing selected Seniors from across the Dalby and Wambo Shire Area.  

The personal stories and photography of some of the Senior Citizens of our area are quite remarkable.  What is seen in this exhibition is a selection of thirty people who start to form a visual kaleidoscope of the diversity of personal character, history, tenacity, humour and substance, which has formed spontaneously over time into the nature and personality of the district.

Who are the 'THREE WELL KNOWN AUSTRALIANS'

in the Painting

GUESS WHO?  Locals are being invited to guess who the three well-know Australians are in this painting. 

If there’s such a thing as comfort food in the visual arts world, Martin Shaw’s painting may well be it.  Created in 1982, Three Well-Known Australians is striking in its simplicity: three abstract figures – a headless blue figure, a crouching red figure and a green figure holding an umbrella – sit on a bright yellow background.

But the artwork isn’t just about acrylics on canvas. Shaw, 62, has been touring his painting around Australia since 1983, collecting the names of the people who have visited the work, and cataloging in yearbooks whom they think the figures might represent.

Shaw sees his project as something that ought to stand the test of time. “These yearbooks form a portrait of Australia – what people in 1983 thought is going to be different to what people think in a 100 years’ time,” he says.

ACTIVE SENIORS IN OUR COMMUNITY

This photographic exhibition depicting the active side of Dalby Seniors.  The Dalby Seniors' Week Committee commissioned the exhibition to coincide with Seniors' Week celebrations in 2006.

The exhibition featured the work of talented and then youthful photographer, Nick Shipway.

At the time she said the exhibition showcased the active and interesting side of people over the age of 60.

"We want to show just how active and interesting life can be in the later years and to debunk any misconceptions generally attributed to older people," Mrs Smith said.

Nick Shipway gathered evidence to show how men and women not only in their 60s, but also in their 70s and 80s, are thoroughly enjoying an active, stimulating life.

"I want people to get an appreciation for the seniors and know how much they do," said Nick.
