The Dayboro Art Gallery is buzzing with activity.

Many artists are involved in the preparations for the highly anticipated and fast-approaching Dayboro Day on 26th May! Our town and surrounding areas come alive with excitement and celebration. Dayboro Day brings huge numbers to Dayboro and to the art gallery and local cafes. When visiting the gallery, many visitors enjoy choosing their favourite artwork for People’s Choice.

During Dayboro Day, local artist, Mam, will have her ‘Scream’ artwork set up on the verandah of the Gallery. Take a memorable ‘selfie’! Visitors are also invited to attach feathers with “Hoo they Love” to Danielle Latta’s 2metre Frogmouth Owl artwork in the art space.

Come and visit the art space in the downtown stage area at Roderick A. Cruice Park. Be greeted by a 4metre wavy air dancer. There will be a free-standing selfie wall with wings so this will give another photo opportunity. Artists will also be set up around this area with artworks and demonstrations. Kids art is also being organised as one of the events for the day.

The Dayboro Art Gallery’s theme for the Dayboro Parade is Frieda Kahlo; with some artists dressing like Frieda. Other artists will be ‘wearing’ costumes and brightly painted frames during the parade. Have your photo taken in one of these frames after the parade.

Congratulations goes out to gallery members, including Tina who was recently a finalist in the 31 West Chambers Art Prize and for selling her artwork. Michelle Newby, Danielle Latta, and Majella Holton recently entered artworks in the Sandgate Art Society Easter Show; achieving prizes, recommendations and also selling artwork at the show.
