St Mary’s Anglican Church, often called now St Mary’s-on-the-Cliffs, is a heritage-listed churchyard at 433, 447 & 449 Main Street, Kangaroo Point, Queensland, Australia. It was designed by Richard George Suter and built in 1873 by Alfred Grant. It was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992. Wikipedia

The amazing thing about the **St Mary’s Church Hall – is it’s Artistic Heritage!

Thanks to Minister – Gary Harch for sharing this with me and taking time to talk ……Extract Only …… On the high Porphyry cliffs, looking across the river to the Botanic Gardens and Parliament House to Mount Coot-tha, is a long narrow room beneath the hall of St Mary’s Anglican Church at Kangaroo Point in Brisbane.

Inside, on the upright of the double-doors that open out to the river terrace, stands “The Paint Tree” – an oil-paint-encrusted column of many colours, almost 15cm thick at the top. It stands as a symbol of the “creative” drawing and painting classes conducted in this room by a series of artist-tutors in the 50s and 60s ……………………. (not the least being) – Richard Rodier Rivron, Margaret Cilento, John Rigby, Jon Molvig, Roy Churcher and Mervyn Moriarty ……………………….!!

More recently – the 1/2 Dozen Group painted here – before relocating to Sherwood where they now hold life classes on a Friday – so much history can only inspire us!!
