WILD Australia, on tour from the University of Queensland Anthropology Museum, will officially open at the Grafton Regional Gallery on Friday May 12 at 5.30pm, followed by a Wild Australia Curator’s Seminar on Saturday May 13 at 10am.

This exhibition presents photographs and historical documents relating to a group of Aboriginal people in the 1890s who were taken on a national touring ‘Wild West Show’ by journalist, politician and entrepreneur, Archibald Meston.

The exhibition holds special significance for Grafton and the Regional Gallery, as some photographs in the exhibition were taken by John W. Lindt, of whom the Gallery holds a significant collection of photographs.

 To RSVP for the Wild Australia Official Opening or Curator’s Seminar, contact the Gallery on 6642 3177.
