Enjoy a night of classical music and learn more about the Sunshine Coast Art Collection at the next Caloundra Regional Gallery Friday3Live event on May 19 from 6-8pm as a part of the current exhibition, Re-View: Selected works from the Sunshine Coast Art Collection.

The Collection Conversations and Classical Music evening will be facilitated by gallery curator Hamish Sawyer, with past and present directors and curators of the collection Nina Shadforth, John Waldron and Lynda Griffin joining in the conversation.

Find out which piece in the collection is each panel members’ favourite, what are their memories of the Sunshine Coast Art Prize and thoughts on its evolution, hear stories from years gone by at the gallery and why an art prize and art collection are significant to a regional gallery and a region’s culture.

The evening will begin with the soothing sounds of the cello performed by renowned cellist Louise King and finish with a beautiful concert ‘Cello Ballade Duo’ featuring Louise King and pianist, Catherine Guinevere Lynagh.

Complimentary light snacks will be available and a cash bar for drink purchases.
