Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery
128 Haly Street, Kingaroy 4610
Kingaroy Regional Art Gallery is the place if you’re looking for beautiful local art or a creative keepsake of your travels. It’s the oldest public art space in the South Burnett and has a growing reputation as one of South East Queensland’s most dynamic arts hubs.
The gallery is run by not-for-profit Kingaroy Arts Team Inc, a group of art lovers intent on giving it new impetus and direction , and focussed on kick- starting public art in Kingaroy and the South Burnett. They delight in hosting exhibitions which break new ground, and can be fun, thought provoking or just plain quirky.
The Gallery is supported by the South Burnett Regional Council which maintains the heritage-listed Art Deco building it occupies within the Kingaroy Information, Art and Heritage precinct (directly opposite the town’s iconic peanut silos).
‘Shop 38’ is the Gallery’s surprise package for locals and out-of-town visitors, as it presents a constantly changing showcase of South Burnett art and high-end craftwork. Shop 38 takes its name from the year the Art Deco-style former Shire Council Chambers were opened. The building is a destination in itself, retaining many handsome Deco features.
