The objectives of the gallery are to:
promote local and regional arts;
provide emerging artists with opportunities to display and market their artworks in a professional exhibition space;
foster cultural experiences for community and visitors to the area.
The Roxy Gallery is located upstairs at 131 Summerland Way
Council’s Roxy Gallery is once again opening it space up to the young creative minds of this region with the new exhibition of works by students attending COLOURSS.
COLOURSS stands for Community Of Learners Of Upper Richmond Small Schools and comprises Afterlee, Barkers Vale, Collins Creek, Rukenvale, The Risk and Wiangaree Public Schools.
Students attending these schools have had regular opportunities dating back to 2002 to exhibit their art works in the Roxy Gallery.
In 2018, they explored the theme of metamorphosis and in this year’s exhibition they investigate the design of food .
‘Food, Different By Design’ will be the students’ first exhibition in the new gallery space.
This is a creative look at the things we eat and how the design of food engages our creative thoughts. Young people approach making art with wonderful freeness and spontaneity and their works encourage viewers to see things from another perspective.
Due to the current health regulations, this exhibition will not be holding an official opening. The Roxy Gallery requires all visitors to QR register on entry and while in the gallery wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
The volunteers are happy to assist people if needed.
