ART THAT'S FREE FOR ALL; Public Galleries Are Home to Diverse Range of Art and Exhibitions


Byline: WORDS: TONY GILL

The Sunshine Coast is now a major community and therefore worthy of a substantial public art gallery. While we wait to see what our signature art gallery may look like, we can still enjoy wonderful art in the many public galleries dotted throughout the region.

Within an easy drive, these exhibiting spaces host a diverse selection of art and often touring exhibitions as well.

The Caloundra Regional Art Gallery is the public art gallery for the Sunshine Coast Council area, while Tewantin hosts the Noosa Regional Gallery at the picturesque Noosa Marina.

There are also regional art galleries to the north at Gympie - housed in a delightful heritage building - and to the south is the purpose-built Hub at Caboolture (in the Moreton Bay region, but easily accessible).

Complementing the regional galleries are a number of other spaces open to the public at no charge.

The University of the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery is on the campus at Sippy Downs.

Nambour has the Old Ambulance Station which regularly hosts new displays, and Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre continues to be a great venue for the visual arts.

All these galleries host regularly changing exhibitions and events, so for the most up-to-date information, check out the Sunshine Coast Art Gallery Trail website and go to the 'Exhibitions' page.
