The objectives of the gallery are to:
promote local and regional arts;

foster cultural experiences for community and visitors to the area.
The Roxy Gallery is located upstairs at 131 Summerland Way
Lines In Space, Life In Place is a new body of works by local artists Rebecca Tapscott O’Meara and Jill Runciman.
Both women are heavily involved in pursuing their interests in art making with a passion that sees them manage employment, family life, community participation and time for exploring their individual creative interests.
The two artists have been exploring the world of cyanotype printing and playing around with embellishing their images through the incorporation of digital college and drawing.
By working on a two dimensional plane they have both found interesting individual ways to tell their own creative stories on life.
Lines In Space, Life In Place will open on 3 July with the official opening event commencing at 6pm on Friday 5 July.
The last day of this exhibition will be Sunday 4 August providing patron a raft of time to visit the gallery and show their support for local artists.
