A note from Brisbane Artist Rosanna Lyons, who will be displaying her paintings in the City Hall "art gallery" (50 Park Place, Brisbane) during the month of July:
Please join me for a fun evening of art with appetizers and wine at Brisbane City Hall on July the 10th from 6pm 'till 8pm.
I am an Irish artist who lives in Brisbane and would like to share my recent paintings with you.
I am greatly influenced by the figure and most recently dancers, after I rediscovered my childhood love of dance and became an adult ballet dancer myself.
I like to examine the pain behind the beauty of ballet.
I have worked since I was a teenager in effects animation at Disney, Dreamworks, on the Simpsons and The Smurfs among other productions.
I work from my home in Brisbane and my studio at Hunter's Point Shipyard and am currently exhibiting at City Art on Valencia in The Mission district.
Hope to see you at my show here in Brisbane!

It will likely be later in the day when they get to Brisbane as they start south and work north. However, with patrol having been impacted by events at SFO over the weekend, it is subject to SFO flight restrictions that may or may not change. We will update here as we know more.

The Council this past Monday night received a very thorough presentation from Zi Zi Searles, Remedial Project Manager for the EPA's Re-Powering Rapid Response Team, which supports the RE-Powering America's Land Initiative - the program through which Brisbane was chosen as 1 of 26 sites to receive technical assistance in the form of a renewable energy study for the Brisbane Baylands. If you missed it, you can watch back just the portion focused on the presentation (the full meeting playback can be viewed here).
This video will also be available for future viewing on the Renewable Energy page of the Baylands section of the City's website.
