Meaning and knowledge open debate that go on forever; the name Thuringowa may not as I had assumed be an Indigenous word with a poetic meaning but rather a historic link to the German province 'Thuringen' attributed to the 19th century surveyor John Steiglitz. In a contemporary sense though,the name Thuringowa is associated with a dynamic, youthful region growing at a rapid pace embracing the power of technology and looking towards the future. The Riverway complex seeks to recognise the new demographic of young families and couples locating to this region, seeking opportunities but also wanting to be part of a cultural work. In acknowledgement of this, the newly relocated Pinnacles Gallery has staged Plastic, Water & the New White Cube, the inaugural exhibition that establishes dialogues with contemporary art, the community and this vast new space.
