A new cultural hub!

The revitalised Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery is shaping up as a South East Queensland cultural hub.

It offers diverse monthly exhibitions by local and visiting artists in three gallery spaces, often including a themed exhibition from the South Burnett Regional Council’s art collection.

Shop 38 at the gallery is now the best showcase for regional art and high end craft – with over 40 artists and craft people represented.

The gallery’s home, in the former Kingaroy Shire Council Chambers is an Art Deco gem, worth visiting for its architectural features.  It’s easily located opposite the town’s iconic peanut silos.

What’s new in January 2016…

A major new exhibition Music of the Spheres by Gold Coast artist Ali Bezer takes-over Gallery’s ONE and TWO. The work is the artist’s visual response to earthly and cosmic soundscapes – it’s where art and science collide.

It is thought provoking, visually exciting, and fresh from Griffith University and the galleries of the West End and Valley in Brisbane.

And in Gallery THREE a recently turned 15 year old Nanango girl exhibits her artwork – all with a sureness of colour and line that simply stuns.

Both exhibitions run from Friday, 8 January to Sunday, 31 January 2016.
