2022 Artist Catalogue Submission Deadline has closed.

Our exhibition Curator is currently selecting works from well over 1000 incredible entries submitted for our 22 Catalogue. For curatorial reasons we aim to limit this to 750 items on display.

Catalogue selection will be complete by mid-August.

Points to remember if accepted and your art is displayed on the site catalogue:

  • All supplied works must be clearly marked with the name of the artist and title. In the case of three-dimensional works submitted in quantity, individual saleable pieces should be numbered consecutively.
  • All two-dimensional works will be strung, ready for hanging, except large works to be hung direct from D-shackles. It is recommended that non-framed canvases have painted edges and be sturdy i.e. at least 25mm deep. Warped canvases will not be hung.
  • All works are subject to commission and to the relevant GST charges (found here), upon sale unless otherwise arranged with the curator.

    Graham Centre

    The RME Downlands Art Exhibition is usually held in the College’s Graham Centre. This is at the top of the curved driveway, the entry on Ruthven Street, Toowoomba.  We will continue this grand tradition in 2022.  Our regular curator, Evan Hollis, strives to present a large, formal gallery space with artworks curated primarily by genre, sunject and media useage. Accepted artworks are of a high  standard whereby more affordable works are often hung near serious investment pieces creating an interesting viewing experience and purchasing options for all browsers.

    During the exhibition refreshments are available at the Café in  Tudor Hall which is adjacent to the Graham Centre.  Visitors can relax with morning or afternoon tea or lunch whilst contemplating your newly acquired art under the shaded café tables.
