The Tableland Regional Gallery is situated in a region of diverse landscapes including World Heritage Wet Tropics, expansive Savannah country along with a variety of agricultural and pastoral farmlands. This environment has attracted a thriving arts community of fibre artists, potters, photographers, sculptors, artists and teachers. The Tableland Regional Gallery was established in March 2008 to promote regional art and to encourage both emerging and professional artists. It is the only regional gallery in an area slightly larger than Tasmania with a population of 42,000 and it has become an important part of cultural life in Atherton and on the Tablelands.
The Tableland Regional Gallery is operated by the Tableland Regional Council with one paid staff member and a large team of volunteers. It is situated in a Library-Gallery complex with a common entrance off the new workshop space extension. Staff and volunteers also operate the Foyer Art Gallery and Old Atherton Post Office Gallery.
The annual exhibition schedule provides a regularly changing program of local artists work and travelling exhibitions across the three gallery spaces. The newly created undercover open access space at the Tableland Regional Gallery will host a dynamic series of workshops, opening events and performances.
