The Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery has again secured a fine ensemble of artistic works for community consideration, with four exhibitions launching on Friday night.

The exhibition will showcase work by both local and national artists across various mediums including film, textiles, painting, drawing and more.

'The Shape Of Things' sees Gritta Walker capture the natural beauty of the decomposition of discarded items, while 'Montages: The Full Cut, 1999 – 2015'presents the full suite of eight montage films by artist Tracey Moffatt and her long-time collaborator Gary Hillberg. 

'Open House: 3rd Tamworth Textile Triennial' celebrates the open-ended, porous nature of textiles practice today, and the 'FRESHbark' exhibition will showcase the prodigious artistic talent of our local aboriginal youth.

The event will be opened at 6.30pm by curator of the Tamworth Textiles Triennial, Glenn Barkley, who will also host a curators floor talk at the Gallery on Saturday 11th May at 11am.

Council's Gallery and Museum Manager, Tara Callaghan, said staff were preparing for a big crowd on the night.

"These exhibitions offer a really broad range of artistic styles which always makes for a very enjoyable evening," she said.

"There's so many different mediums to appreciate, and we're sure these exhibitions will appeal to a broad cross-section of the community."

Doors open at 6pm, with official proceedings starting from 6:30pm. Light finger food and full bar facilities will be available.
