Glass artist to bring transparency to leadership as new art gallery president

Laszlo Biro is the new Cassino Art Gallery president.

The Cassino Art Gallery welcomes Laszlo Biro as its new president.

Lazlo came to Australia as a nine year old, narrowly escaping the Hungarian Revolution. His family arrived to a new life in Melbourne in 1960.

On a visit to Austrian friends in Cawongla, Laszlo decided to explore real estate in the area.

Laszlo and Julie bought a property on Manifold Road where they have lived and worked for 14 years.

Laszlo and Julie enjoy a life of creative pursuits. Both are published authors.

Laszlo spends much of his time making creations in glass.

Laszlo’s creations are colourful, textural and fluid, taking inspiration from beauty in the environment. He describes his glass works as interpretive. He exhibited at Cassino Gallery in February and May.

Laszlo is no stranger to leadership in the arts having been president of the Association of Sculptors of Victoria.

He aspires to provide transparency in leadership (as well as in his glass).

An important quality he brings to the role is listening.

The final exhibition for this year at Cassino Art Gallery in Barker Street is Spirit Connect which runs for two weeks from tomorrow, December 7. It features mixed media works from the Casino TAFE art students.
