Home to a community of creative people who love art in all forms
Our Art Centre is the creative hub of Bribie Island. We have several workshop/studio areas, including a well-equipped pottery that are used by about a dozen different art and craft groups and for regular workshops presented by visiting artists, a large exhibition space, and a large and attractive Gift Shop where members can exhibit and sell their work. We weave our magic on all kinds of people
We share our bushland site with the Bribie and District Woodcrafters and the Bribie Gem Club, and hold a joint Craft Market the last Sunday of each month.
Bribie Veterans in Focus
November 10 – 15
Local Vietnam veteran, Adrian Lowe is behind the photographic exhibition “Veterans In Focus” in the week of Remembrance Day.
Local veterans who served in World War II, Korea, Borneo, Malaya, Vietnam, PNG, Iraq and Afghanistan, feature in about 80 poster-sized photos, along with their letters to and from home. The display includes an insert image of each veteran as a young soldier to highlight the passage of time.
Visitors can take a self-guided tour of this exhibition, using tablets and headphones, listen to selected veteran’s stories in their own voice, explanations of military symbols and watch short movies of their morphed transition from youth to older age, hinting at the young spirit still within. The subjects in the exhibition represent the many veterans on Bribie, which boasts the most of any postcode in Australia.
Welcome to 2015. This year is going to provide a bumper crop of creative works. We have many new artists exhibiting in the Matthew Flinders Gallery. More workshops for those who want to discover their inner artist, as well as those who are looking to hone their skills. Markets, music and mixed medium will be just the tip of what will be an exciting year ahead.
