2019 Caloundra Regional Gallery program launch
I was pleased to unveil the 2019 Caloundra Regional Gallery exhibition program on Wednesday, January 23. This year’s program offers even more opportunities to get hands on as well as be inspired by a showcase of immersive art, sculptures, photo media and installations by leading local and Australian artists. Our exhibition program is enhanced by an exceptional range of public programs and events for people of all ages and abilities – from Kids Art Attack and Toddler Wednesday, to artist talks, workshops, Friday3Live events and the Mindful Art program for people living with dementia. For more details on all of the exhibitions, programs and workshops at the gallery, please visit the gallery website
