Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery’s first Friday Session for 2022 will take place next week featuring entertainment from local musician Peter Sajko and the opportunity to explore the current exhibitions.
The community is invited to stroll through the gallery, enjoy a drink with friends and relax while soaking up the atmosphere of the live music.
Council’s Arts, Culture and Events portfolio spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said these events were a great chance for the local community to come together and experience the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery in a different light.
“The upcoming Friday session provides the perfect opportunity for those who may not be able to get to the gallery during usual opening hours to be given the chance to see the current exhibitions, take a look at the gallery shop and enjoy live music,” Cr Learmonth said.
“It is wonderful that the event also provides the chance for local musicians, such as Peter Sajko, to share their original music with the community.”
The Gallery shop will be open for attendees to look through, with a range of specialty handmade wares available from talented local artisans.
There are new additions to the stockists at the gallery shop, including bespoke jewellery of Malki Studio, who were recently featured at the Bundaberg Regional Gallery’s International Women’s Day event.
There is also the opportunity to take home your own piece of the exhibition with art-de-vivre paperweights by Tom Moore whose exhibition is currently showing in Gallery One.
The exhibitions on display include:
- JamFactory Icon Tom Moore: Abundant Wonder — Gallery One
- A grand display: Troy Emery — The Vault
- Form: Bundaberg Regional Galleries Collection (Sculptural Works) — Gallery Two
- The Isolation Beetle Project: Kym Latter — Imaginarts
Entry to the event is free and there are no bookings required.
Drinks are available for purchase from the bar.
