While we are closed to the general public at the end of the university year as usual, this coming year we will be busy behind the scenes preparing the gallery for refurbishment, beginning a wonderful transformation.
Scheduled to reopen in May, we are concerned to stay in touch with you and involve you in our ongoing activities.
Meetings of the Friends of the Drill Hall Gallery will be nomadic for a couple of months, but we promise to make them exciting and rewarding, notwithstanding the closure of the gallery. The friends’ nights will recommence in February.
There will be updates about the exhibitions program for 2016 which will include a rare solo exhibition by West Australian painter Brian Blanchflower, an exhibition curated by Vivien Johnson showcasing the new generation of Papunya artists, and a spectacular exhibition curated by Tony Oates focused on recycled and reinterpreted images and materials.
