TURN RIGHT AT THE DESK

I know that this will sound as if I need to pay a visit to Specsavers but. After being a more than a regular visitor to the Bribie Island Community Arts Centre over the last two years, I have only recently become aware of an area at the centre that had previously escaped my attention, and that is the room at the end of the hallway to the right of the reception desk.

Following my discovery, I have been thinking about the fact that there are probably many others who, when visiting the centre, always head left from reception to enter the Mathew Flinders Gallery and if they do go to the right, it is only into the adjoining display area. I have discovered that the hallway off that display area leads to a room that is a virtual treasure trove of wonderful handmade craft items, paintings, pottery and even baby clothes.

This craft gallery is usually cared for by centre volunteer Carol Smedley with a bit of help from others and she told me that all the items on display are the work of Art Society members and are brought there to be sold. She said that there are times when some are used to top up the display in the gift shop. ‘With Christmas approaching, we will definitely be drawing from here for our display,’ said Carol.

For anyone who has not seen the diverse range of beautiful items in this area of the centre, my advice is that you take the opportunity to check them out with a view to picking up a couple of Christmas gifts. The Bribie Island Community Arts Centre is on Sunderland Drive at Banksia Beach and is open each day except Monday from 10 am. To find out more about what the centre has to offer or becoming a volunteer, either pay them a visit or call 3408 9288.
