Gates is my first exhibition!

The Gates project took me along 6000 kilometres of Australian roadway, which many of us may never travel, to capture an artistic insight into Gates and their stories that we may have otherwise simply walked or driven past without a second look. Over 100 quintessentially Australian gates tell a story of culture, function, art, and power.  After visiting my Gates Exhibition, you will see gates from a new perspective.

Gates is presented at ‘The Churn Room’ in the Old Dayboro Butter Factory – 38 Williams Street Dayboro.

The Dayboro Butter Factory started operations in November 1892 and was later destroyed by fire in May 1929.  The factory at 38 Williams St Dayboro was rebuilt and opened a year later in 1930 before it closed permanently on June 30, 1965.  The Historic Industrial building is now home to local businesses, including the Churn Room, an art space and retail store for a multi-faceted artisan community, including my fine art business – Robyn Darling Images.

Dayboro is a rural town in the Moreton Bay Region of Queensland, Australia, approximately 45 kilometres north-northwest of Brisbane. Only an hour’s drive from the Brisbane CBD or Sunshine Coast, Dayboro is a favourite destination for lovers of arts and culture, car and motorcycle clubs, weekend country drives, and adventurers. This quaint village might be small in size, but it’s big in character with an array of cafes, art, antiques, gift shops, and historical buildings.  Dayboro is well worth the drive.

The exhibition is open to the public October 16 – 30 | Wednesday – Sunday | 10 AM – 3 PM (Closed Mondays & Tuesdays) | Admission is free.
