“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”
“Paradoxically though it may seem, it is none the less true that life imitates art far more than art imitates life.”
― Oscar Wilde
“Any form of art is a form of power; it has impact, it can affect change – it can not only move us, it makes us move .”
― Ossie Davis
DAYBORO ART GALLERY IS THE HOME OF OVER THIRTY MEMBER ARTISTS FROM MANY AREAS OF MORETON REGION, MANY OF THEM FROM THE TOWNSHIP OF DAYBORO ITSELF OR THE SURROUNDING MOUNTAINS AND VALLEYS
The Art Gallery
Located right on the main street of Dayboro this brand new state of the art purpose built gallery, displaying a vast variety of quality and award winning artworks was opened in July 2017. Previously the gallery was on the same location but in the old Lawrence Thorpe's Plumber's Shop (circa 1950's) on the edge of Terror's Creek that was unfortunatly dammaged due to flooding and as such replaced.
Dayboro Art Gallery history
The Dayboro Art Gallery was officially established in 1994 in the old residence. At the start, there were approx 10 members running the gallery voluntarily, displaying various art styles and opening three days a week. In those days, the Gallery was very basic and was gradually improved by members and council contributions.
Dayboro Art Gallery Now
Growing substantially over the years, the gallery now has more than 35 members, with an art display waiting list, so is never short of displaying something new and exciting. We are open seven days a week, staffed by member volunteers.
To ensure consistant veriety and quality a committee was established to oversee the display of new artwork, and balance between the varied types of art.
Many members have won awards and display in art exhibitions across South East Queensland, yet still consistently displays artworks for sale in the Dayboro Art Gallery.
The gallery has a governing committee to comply with the Non-For-Profit regulations, as well to guide the gallery into the future, and to ensure the quality, equal opportunity and promotion of local art.
The gallery is operated by member artists and open for viewing seven days a week 10am till 3pm. From time to time artists may be found working on pieces during the day creating or finishing new pieces.
The future of the Dayboro Art Gallery
The new purposely build gallery opened July 2017, on the current site at 37 William Street Dayboro, proudly sponsored by the Moreton Bay Council. Members will continue displaying a wide variety of original affordable art, ensuring the cultural and artistic diversity remains strong in the community into the future.
