Curator Brian Greenaway, has spent more than half his lifetime in the art business just cannot stay home and
sit around to do nothing. He has to be involved with art, artists and the business of giving people pleasure through the promotion of fine arts.
The opening of Arts Kingaroy has been a challenge and a joy for him. Seeing the look of intense joy on peoples faces when they see beautiful things for the first time has kept him returning to the art promotion scene time and time again. The opening of Arts Kingaroy is just another one of such episodes in his life.

Some of the images of Australia on Display at Arts Kingaroy
Bridging the gap: African Life in Australia photographic exhibition held at the Robina Community Centre Art Gallery in June 2009. Works by Fiona Harding and Tewodros Fekadu depicting traditional and modern aspects of African Culture. Photographs include social traditions, landscapes, religious and cultural images.
It was hoped that by sharing these images we can promote greater understanding, tolerance and harmony in the local Gold Coast community.
Councilor Bob La Castra opened the show which then was followed by Australian and African poets, African drummers and a traditional Ethipoean coffee ceremony performed to a full house.
It is dedicated to current photographic activities and projects that I am working on, or have just completed. I’d love to hear from you so feel free to comment or drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org.
