The World Theatre Gallery Collection has grown significantly since its opening in 1996 and the gallery's collection reflects the many facets of this region. The gallery's compilation ranges from important Queensland artists and objects of historical significance to valuable contemporary and historic photographic works showcasing urban and rural landscapes. The World Theatre Gallery is constantly developing and the gallery enjoys the support of the Friends of the Theatre and backing from the Charters Towers Regional Council.
The gallery is the largest gallery within this region, with over 20 000 visitors annually and presents a broad range of exhibitions, including Charters Towers' rich historical past through to contemporary Australian art, social history, local artists and national touring programs.
On display at the World Theatre Gallery from 8 May - 8 June 2014 is Museum Exposed!, a touring exhibition that features the exceptional work of Stuart Humphreys, Carl Bento and James King, who are part of the photography department from the Australian Museum. The photographers have unique access to some of the world's best artifacts and exhibitions, giving them the chance to take photos like none other. From a Lion wrapped in plastic to a man with an aerial in his hand and a bird on his head, photographers of the Australian Museum in Sydney are exposed to many unique visual opportunities in their daily working lives.
