Dayboro Art Gallery is the home of over thirty member artists fram many areas of the Moreton Bay region, many of them from the Dayboro region itself and surrounding valleys and mountains.

The Building

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 consistent variety 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.

Gallery Extention

Thanks to the grant support from the Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Gambling Community Benefit Fund we have been able to build a minor extension to the back end of the gallery. This allows the gallery and its members to function more efficiently with parts used as artwork storage. It also allows the reestablishment of an arts kiln as was had in the previous gallery on this location.
