Happy Birthday to the ‘Friends, Regional Gallery Caloundra Inc.’
You may not be aware, but in early 1995, a group of passionate artists and community members gathered to form a committee to investigate the possibility of opening an art gallery in Caloundra. Now, in 2016, the Friends, Regional Gallery Caloundra Inc. are celebrating their 21st birthday. I would like to personally thank the inspiring group of volunteers who had the foresight and dedication to bring the gallery to life. For more information and to join the Friends, visit the gallery website or find them on Facebook.
