Geraldton Regional Art Gallery will reopen on Friday with two new exhibitions — and will be open Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am to 3pm.

Void highlights drawings, sculptures, paintings and video by 14 contemporary Aboriginal artists, looking at the landscape and time and space, while Preppers focuses on the anxieties, paranoia, absurdities and hopes of many doomsday preppers and rugged survival gear, high performance materials and specialist technology they use.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said he looked forward to opening night.

“We can’t wait to welcome people back to GRAG this Friday as it re-opens after closing due to COVID-19 restrictions,” he said.

“Both shows have timely themes, so I encourage you to take your time exploring and considering the artworks in Preppers and Void.

Doors will open at 6pm, and RSVP is essential.

A panel talk will take place at 2pm the following day and features Yarns R Us facilitator Ron Bradfield Junior, Yamaji Art representatives and Preppers artist Dan McCabe.

This will start at 2pm and conclude at 3.30pm on Saturday, August 22.
