The View From 1919

The Chapel Theatre
Saturday 3:45pm – 5:00pm

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Tamworth Regional Gallery, The View from 1919, is a theatrical exploration of the people, the art and the social environment of the time.  Gallery founder John (Jack) Salvana will come back to life and take us on a theatrical journey that looks at how Tamworth’s visual art’s collection was established and evolved.  This ‘made in Tamworth’ production will feature the music, clothes and the characters of the early 1900’s and celebrate our rich history.

See this 40 minute performance and learn the unique history of how the second oldest regional gallery in N.S.W. was established. Following the production there will be a panel discussion exploring the opportunities for cross-curatorial and art form collaboration plus discussions about how major bequests and gifts have and can shape a gallery’s history and direction.
