Gala Opening

The Downlands Art Exhibition is regarded as one of the premier art events in Queensland regularly offering the choice of around 1000 pieces from hundreds of artists.

Celebrating 34 years in 2020, this years’ Exhibition would normally run for eight days as part of the official Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers program, but unfortunately has been cancelled due to the Cornavirus outbreak.

As well as the featured artist, the wonderfully talented bush artist – Kathy Ellem, exhibiting artists include a mix of international and local artists.
