Exhibition: 22.96 / receding

A multi-faceted exhibition by three Gympie artists – Miriam Innes, Joolie Gibbs and Leeroy Todd – ‘22.96 / receding’ commemorates the anniversary of the February 2022 flooding event that took place within regional and urban Gympie areas.

Held at Gympie Regional Gallery, this exhibition captures the significance of the experience and the impacts on local residents, businesses and the environment.

The exhibition is free, and all community members are invited to attend.

With a series of public programs, ’22.96 / receding’ invites the broader community to participate in activities, explore artistic techniques and contribute to the sharing of stories and experiences in creative and meaningful ways. The works created by the community will be collated in a digital presentation as part of the exhibition and shared through libraries across the region.

The artists’ aim is to create a positive experience for the community, with new impressions to provoke affirming reflections of the Mary River and a sense of belonging to place. The theme of creative recovery forms a foundation for building sustainable community resilience, and facilitating community healing and recovery. The legacy of this exhibition also serves to document this important event in our region's history and to highlight our community spirit and collective resilience in the face of natural disasters.
