This exhibition showcases a selection of the artworks acquired by the Gallery over the past three years. From landscape to abstraction, sculpture to drawing, the broad range of artists and styles offers a snapshot of the Collection’s diversity.
The Moree Plains Gallery Collection is a community resource, built to benefit the people of Moree Plains Shire and visitors to the region.
