After serving as the Acting Director at the gallery since October 2023, Ms Thomson said she was thrilled to be officially appointed Director of the gallery. 

“The Fraser Coast has a vibrant and colourful cultural life, and the Hervey Bay Regional Gallery has an essential role in promoting cultural diversity, community engagement and freedom of expression,” she said.

“My top priority is building the Hervey Bay Regional Gallery’s local and national reputation as a leading regional gallery and continuing the momentum we’ve built since reopening the gallery in April 2022.”

With experience working at the Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane and two Bachelor degrees from QUT, Ms Thomson brings a wealth of expertise to the gallery, Fraser Coast Regional Council said in a statement.
