Ian Smith & Glen O'Malley - Three Foot Six, the Sunlander
Fri 02 Jun - Sun 25 Jun
LAUNCH: 6PM SAT 3 JUN
A collection of photographs and paintings by prominent Queensland artists, photographer Glen O’Malley and painter Ian Smith, capturing Queensland’s unique rail culture.
The photographs and paintings are the result of several excursions and many were captured on the Sunshine route. In 2003, O’Malley drove from Cairns to Brisbane photographing trains along the way. He returned, travelling with Smith on the Sunlander.
This exhibition records Queensland rail heritage and captures the high and low energy and excitement associated with trains and rail travel.
Features images of the Sunlander, the first Tilt Train from Cairns, and the Gulflander on the Normanton-Croydon line, the only Queensland rail line not joined to the rest of the state.
