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.
The combined talents of the Friday Pastellists and Drawing Group are on display in the Matthew Flinders Gallery from Thursday, September 3, with the official opening Friday, September 4 , 6-8pm. Come browse over a glass of wine and nibbles. Entry is by gold coin donation. Runs til September 12.
Sharing the Gallery space is passionate octogenarian woodworker George Wroe, from Hervey Bay, whose works pay tribute to his lifetime love of wood and sport. George’s beautiful works range from a majestic 3m dining table, made from golden northern silky oak, grandfather clocks, pedestals shaped from layered timbers his grandfather constructed, bowls and platters to two cedar cases holding his own racing bicycle on which he won many medals. The other holds what he believes to be the oldest racing bike in Queensland, made in 1910, owned and raced by his great uncle. This is an exhibition that will have you talking for weeks. Don’t miss it. Runs til September 12.
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.
