Cultural and Artistic Diversity

Located just outside Brisbane the gallery is the cultural heart of Dayboro, a town with all the charm of yesteryear but a present-day vibe

This state-of-the-art gallery is home to over thirty local artists, exhibiting an extensive cross-section of artworks. Experience a surprising range of styles and genres, your personal tastes will be challenged, if not expanded by the gallery collection

Many members have won awards and display in art exhibitions across South East Queensland, yet still consistently display artworks for sale in the Dayboro Art Gallery.

The Experience

Look at the world through the eyes of an artist:

Most influencing experiences: My grade 8 art teacher and a very supportive mother encouraged me to go to art school way back when. I’ve had an extensive career as a graphic designer and art director. In later years, further study and teaching art have allowed me to return to my first love of painting

Mostly fun I have is usually teaching in class. One fellow was quite a good artist but he used to match a colour he wanted with a separate tube of paint… quite expensive until he came to my class and learnt how to mix colours with the basic 4 + black and white. He was delighted. Funny!!! (Sharon Harper-Greentree)

Who are you, and what do you do? I am a retired Customer Service Manager who was inspired by my wife’s mosaic creations to take up this art form. I enjoy creating items with bright colours and unusual designs. I have mosaicked items such as a full size surfboard, chairs and many garden ornaments. I prefer to use recycled materials such as china, pebbles, mirror and broken ceramic tiles, although this is not always possible. I have been enjoying this art form now for about 14 years.

How to see like an artist:

Observe everythingThink of a theme, like an eye or a heart. Then see how many you can find in your surroundings throughout the day. In the knots of a tree, cracks in the sidewalk or shadows and the like.

Look closerPick up a leaf, a small Knotted twig, or a rock. Look closely at its patterns, shapes and colours

Take note of your emotions – How are you feeling today? What colour would describe your mood?

Experiment and experience – Eat something different, try something new

Explore – go to all those places you say you will but never have. Go for a walk, visit a Museum or new café

Reflect – Make a note of the beautiful, the gentle, the magical, and ask why?
