Lots to tell …… 

Our 2nd “Handmade Meets the Arts” on the 2nd July was attended by 700 people surpassing our 1st markets in October 2015.  The next date to remember is 26th November “Xmas Handmade meets the Arts”.

Congratulations to the 19 MBAC members who received art awards at the three 2016 local shows:  Redcliffe, Dayboro and Samford. Thank you to everyone who supported our local shows.

The “Xmas in July” exhibition by our MBAC members is currently on show and if you would like to join the artists for coffee and a chat on Thursday 21st July at 10am please RSVP

We are only half way through the year and lots more to come for the Moreton Bay Arts Council and its members.
