Take Me Home to Tamworth – tour with curator, Bridget Guthrie

18 January @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm AEDT

Free

Co-curated by Bridget Guthrie (Director at Tamworth Regional Gallery) and Dr Rosslyn Russell, this lovely exhibition celebrates the Tamworth Country Music Festival turning 50 years old in 2022 and interprets Tamworth’s place at the heart of Australian country music. It describes the complex narrative that is Australian Country Music; from its early beginnings to contemporary artists’ work.

Join Bridget Guthrie on an intimate tour, and take the opportunity to hear the behind-the-scenes stories from the exhibition, which was 2 years in the making. She’ll point out some of the treasures from the Gallery’s own collection, and that of the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame.

Other collections, such as that of the National Portrait Gallery, have also provided images; and specially selected works from photographers who have attended festivals over many decades will also be on display.

Discover the singers, their songs, instruments and costumes, and the fans who have made Tamworth Australia’s ‘Country Music Capital’
