Friday sessions Brad Flamingo

Friday Sessions will kick off at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery this week to give the local entertainment scene a boost.

Aimed at people looking for a place to catch up with friends and relax on a Friday evening, the monthly sessions will be an eclectic mix of art appreciation and great entertainment.

The first session is called Grooving the Full Moon and will give people the opportunity to take in two photography exhibitions while enjoying beats by DJ Brad Flamingo (Brad Marcellos).

Brad is a writer, photographer, and musician, and said his music on the night will set a relaxed mood and fit in with the art gallery vibe.

“The Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery is such an important place for the whole community … it's where creative people can feel at home,” he said.

“It's a real honour to be able to get in there and play some beats because we want to encourage people to use that space and feel like it is part of their living room.”

Similar Friday Sessions have been popular at other art galleries around Australia and Brad is hoping the sessions will be a welcome addition to local night life.

“There's so many younger people that have moved here recently as well. I think there's definitely change in the air as far as people leaving the cities and finding out about how good places like Bundaberg are.”

Photography on show

On show will be the National Photographic Portrait Prize 2020 from the National Portrait Gallery and the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery is the first venue to display this exhibition.

There is also a series of images by local Bundaberg photographer David Graham, called Photogruzzi, that celebrates his quirky portraits and interesting landscapes.

The monthly Friday sessions are free to attend will run at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery from 5pm-7pm, each with a different theme.
