The Mackay Region's newest gallery has opened in the Pioneer Valley country town of Finch Hatton. Councillors Ayril Paton and Justin Englert from Mackay Regional Council were special guests at the opening on Thursday, May 31, 2018.
The gallery's first exhibition coincided with the completion and official opening of Finch Hatton Suites, housing three newly refurbished commercial spaces located in the former hardware store building at 13 Anzac Parade, Finch Hatton.
The gallery is now on offer to a creative artist or investor, ideally whom can manage and co-ordinate exhibitions with their own art pieces, in addition to displaying and nurturing local and regional artists, to offer an ever evolving creative art space, along one of the regions busiest tourist routes.... Mackay-Eungella Road.
The artspace and gallery offer its own entrance, an option for a subdivided room, street frontage and large window displays. The existing lighting network creates instant ambience and various options.
The project is walk-in ready and will offer a life and career changing opportunity for a motivated and talented artist.
One small condition is that there is always to be a space available for local artists to display their pieces. The refurbishment of the nearby railway station and proposed tourism hub will compliment the gallery and generate large visiting numbers, whom will now stop in little Ol' Finch Hatton, as opposed to passing through.
This is, and will be the start of something special in Finch Hatton... join us whilst we are at the start of the project and contribute as well via the Finch Hatton Progress Association projects, adding some fresh ideas and energy, to our lovely, country community.
The recent grant approved by local council includes beautification to our streetscape, gardens and commercial area, including the gallery location.
Many local, state and federal grants are also on offer for community art galleries, which is also supported by our local progress association.
The gallery is walking distance to the post office, general store, showgrounds, swimming creeks and hotel.
An opportunity is also available to rent an adjoining studio apartment, at $95pw.
Futhermore, the entire complex can also be on offer, including 2 additional office spaces at $95pw, or room to expand, a studio unit option or 1-2 bedroom apartment, with 2 bay shed. This is a commercial property just listed for sale. $392 000. Buy with your SMSF if your accountant or financial advisor gives you the thumbs up.
We have one of Mackays best agents also on standby should you wish to sell your suburb home, in exchange for a tree change.... ask us.
Either way, the lease is secured for as long or as little as you would like, as you set the terms, prior to the building being sold.
Inspections are available daily from 8th September, 2018. Appointments compulsory. Call Fiona on 0437 558 145.
