Art Shows at City Hall

Thanks to the efforts of Clara Johnson, former Brisbane Mayor, and Carole Nelson, former Community Development Director, the Large Conference Room at City Hall now serves not only as the main meeting location for city business, but also as an art gallery.  There have been many art shows over the years, which are generally accompanied with a Wednesday evening Artist Reception from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. 

The Parks and Recreation Department is always looking for artists interested in displaying their work in City Hall's art gallery.  If you or someone you know is interested, please click here for more information. 


Current Showcase - Rosanna Lyons

Rossanna Photo 2


Rosanna Lyons was born in Johnswell in Kilkenny, Ireland.  She studied fine art in Limerick and went on to create special effects for companies such as Spielberg's Amblimation in London, Disney in Paris and Dreamworks in Los Angeles.  Rosanna's true love is fine art painting, which she continued to study over the years.  She loves drawing from the figure, and loves the color and curve of expression.  She also uses Brisbane as her model, walking through the canyons and hills, taking pictures, which she uses as inspiration for her paintings.

Rosanna is honored to be showing at Brisbane City Hall and would love for you to come by and see her artwork in person.  She will be having a gallery reception on August 7, so please come by and meet her in person.  You can also see her work at www.rosannalyons.com.
