Latest News from the Emu Park Art Gallery

FROM MARCH 2020 ALL WORKSHOPS CANCELLED … until further notice

Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, we regret to inform you that all our Art Workshops have been postponed until further notice.
With no Gallery, no venue, and the ‘social distancing’ thing, it is impossible to conduct quality Art experiences that you have come to expect from our workshop program. If you have already registered, we can hold that payment for the future workshop or reimburse you. If you wish to be reimbursed please message us here on FB with your BSB and account number. Hopefully we will catch up later in the year. – Thank you for your understanding

If you are interested in any workshop but can’t make it, or you are interested in future artistic workshops presented by Emu Park Art Gallery then just call Barb on 0407640711 and register your expression of interest.

Media Release – – Emu Park Art Gallery Winter Exhibition 30th June at 4.30pm

This month the Emu Park Art Gallery opens its ‘Winter Art Exhibition’ featuring the works of the twenty five artists in this art collective. Following the success of the two previous exhibitions this exhibition promises to be another selection of diverse and interesting works.  The photographs of two new artists to join the group will highlight the diversity of the art works available from the gallery which vary to include watercolour, oil paintings, printmaking, pottery, sculpture and mosaics.

 Photographer Simon Cox joined the Emu Park Gallery in 2018 and has been a regular exhibitor for the last 9 months. His spectacular work reflects his love of landscape and nature photography, as seen in his animal photographs, which he has observed on his many trips to Africa. Simon is an accomplished digital photographer a skill he has used in the production of magazines, catalogues, flyers and show books.

Simon has travelled throughout the world in his photographic work but is now settled in Zilzie. He is a foundation member of the Keppel Coast camera club and a member of the Rockhampton Photography Club.

The latest member of the Emu Park Gallery is Alan Barker, an internationally known photographer, who teaches and leads photography tours throughout Australia and the world. As a professional photographer, he has had the pleasure in working with and co-leading workshops with other professional photographers from the United States, New Zealand and Australia; catering to a wide range of clientele.

 “I believe that photography is a source of personal inspiration and expression, where each image crafted holds an individual message for the creator and viewer alike. I love to photograph landscapes and wildlife and have a great enthusiasm for leading photography workshops, which allow me to teach the intricacies of photography to other enthusiastic photographers.”

Both Alan and Simon’s stunning landscapes will feature in this exhibition. The exhibition will open on Sunday 30th June at 4.30pm at the Emu Park Gallery, Pattison Street, Emu Park. All are welcome to attend. The Gallery workshop program still has vacancies in workshops scheduled for the next six months. To enrol go to website https// or Facebook

emu park art gallery continues to thrive


(Aug 2018) Yes it is true that the beautiful Art Gallery building has been sold. A decision was made to draw the curtain on the Gallery and our last day of public operation will be Sunday the 1st of September.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS… The Art Gallery and its members are, and will continue to grow and thrive into the future. “We” have a bright future and contingency plans are being made.

WE ARE GETTING A NEW GALLERY … We hope to be in our brand new Gallery in August 2020, but intend to keep operating as a Gallery in the meantime. As they say “Watch this space”

RE OUR WORKSHOPS…. 2019 is going to be big for Art Workshops from the Gallery. These will be advertised soon. We have suitable venues to hold all upcoming workshops.

Please spread the word should you hear that the Emu Park Gallery group is closing…. We are all alive and well and as creative and enthusiastic as ever.

We will continue to keep you all up to date with us going forward into ‘our’ future.
