Artist Di HEENAN was an A ROOM collective member, was instrumental in setting up THAT Contemporary Art Space in 1984-1985 and in May 1985 took up the position as Director of The Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum which was also established in 1985, a community cultural initiative funded by the Gladstone Regional Council.
A gallery dedicated to promoting art and heritage for and by the communities of the Gladstone region and Central Queensland, acting as a focal point for the preservation and display of the region’s history and cultural heritage.
In 1985 Di organised the exhibition This is That, from the That Collective of artists as a means for presenting new art from Brisbane emerging artists and significantly, as an artist-run collective model useful for Gladstone artists.
