Latest News from the Emu Park Art Gallery
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.

WOW !!!! How Good Is This ? ….. Emu Park now has its own famous Gothic Couple thanks to the wonderful talents of Emu Parks own Mosaic Master Barb Tamassy.
Barb spent many months creating the Gothics to go onto a specially built bench. It will be on permanent display at the entrance to the Gallery. Over the time she was assisted by volunteers who gave their time to put the tile pieces into their respective spots.
Barb is a long time member of the Emu Park Art Gallery and runs regular mosaic workshops.
A special mention should go out to Barbs husband Ray who constructed the bench seat to house the Emu Park Gothics.
The Gallery is open to the public from 10am to 4pm Wednesday to Sunday. Admission is FREE. Why not pop down and take your own photo with the Emu Park Gothics.

(Jan 2018) Yes it is true that the beautiful Art Gallery building has been put up for sale. It was a hard decision that was made by the Beasley Family that own the building but alas, all good things must come to an end.
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 for the ‘if’ and ‘when’ the time comes to move out.
RE OUR WORKSHOPS…. 2018 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 should we have to vacate the Art Gallery Building.
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.
The Gallery itself will still be operating as usual –
Open 10am to 4pm Wed – Sun
42 Pattison Street, Emu Park.
Come on down to the Gallery and check out what is available. You won’t be disappointed. Admission is FREE.
