Expression of Interest

The TYTO Regional Art Gallery strives to add to the diversity of the arts and cultural development in the Hinchinbrook Shire.  It will continue to exhibit quality works for the education and enjoyment of all those that live in and visit the Hinchinbrook community. The TYTO Regional Art Gallery has a continuous program of exhibitions and both the John Coburn Main Gallery space as well as the Niche Gallery space is available for exhibition of works by groups or individual artists.

Any individual or group of artists interested in exhibiting at the Gallery in 2017 or 2018 are encouraged to complete the attached expression of interest form.
