YOU HAVE ASKED FOR an Arts & Creatives Directory for the Moreton Bay Region. We, the Moreton Bay Arts Council has commenced laying the foundation for this 2017 project.  It includes a listing for all regional artists and groups, arts workers, studios, galleries, in short, all Visual, Design and Performing Arts creatives across the region. 

Congratulations to The Dayboro Gallery, who is getting a new building – the doors closed on 9th October. The Moreton Bay Regional Council has generously agreed to replace the Dayboro Gallery building after it was deemed unsafe owing to age and regular flood waters. 

Until the new building is completed in early 2017 the members will show their art at:

Dayboro - The 1st Sunday of each month, operating from the Credit Union Building opposite the Dayboro Markets. 

Redcliffe - Artwork from Dayboro members will be showing at the Redcliffe Cultural Centre “Stage Door Gallery” upstairs level from 20th October until 12th December 2016.

Artist Profile of the Month

Dorle Hannam

Art is a language without words, a land to be explored, a world to discover.

When I am in the zone, I become a traveller. I prefer not to know my destination, not to be confined by being told what I can't do, but to see where I arrive.
