By: | Tags: | Comments: 0

Join us for the Official Exhibition Opening of
Boss Drovers
A Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art Touring Exhibition
John Mullins Memorial Art Gallery


A touring exhibition of works by Robert MacPherson, one of Australia’s most highly regarded contemporary artists, now in the QAGOMA Collection.

Works will be accompanied by a tailor-made digital interactive titled Drover Muster to encourage audience participation and engagement with the artist’s concepts and content.

The exhibition will be opened by Roma drover Bill Little, who has undertaken one of Australia’s last great long-distance droving ventures, Brinkworth’s Great Cattle Drive.

Join us around the yarning circle and listen to Bill re-tell some of his droving adventures.  Enjoy beef on the spit with a cold beer and view a selection of portraits of Australia’s past boss drovers.
